Anderson Cooper, a popular CNN host of ‘The Anderson Cooper 360’ has taken to instagram to showcase his 10-week son named Wyatt, saying the child was named after his father.
The confessed gay on-air-personality shared two adorable new photos with Wyatt, which garnered attention from his celebrity friends.
Andy Cohen, Tanya Sam, Diane Von Furstenberg and more gushed over the adorable photos, which had Anderson holding a diaper-clad Wyatt.
The first photo featured the father-son duo giving serious expressions to the camera, while the second shot showed Anderson kissing his son on the cheek.
The proud dad captioned the post: “Wyatt is 10 weeks old and doing great. He likes naps and milk and being read to. Thank you for all your lovely cards and messages!”
The Anderson Cooper 360 host’s friends flooded the comments section with compliments for the father and son.
The CNN host revealed while on the air back in late April that he welcomed his first son via surrogate.
Anderson, 53, wrote- “I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father. This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. He is named after my father, who died when I was ten. I hope I can be as good a dad as he was.”
He wrote further- “As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son’s birth.
“Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing- what she and all surrogates give to families who can’t have children.”
