Andy Cohen and best friend Anderson Cooper ‘introduce’ their baby sons – The Sun
ANDY Cohen and best friend Anderson Cooper have 'introduced' their sons for the first time.
Appearing in a segment on Andy's show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, both men held up their sons and talked about their future friendship.
The men became dads for the first time just a few months apart, with Andy, 52, welcoming Benjamin in February 2019.
Not to be outdone, CNN anchor Anderson, 53, also decided to join the ranks of parenthood and became a father to Wyatt at the end of April.
Due to coronavirus lockdown, the babies have not been able to meet in real life yet, so their dads thought it would be perfect to introduce them on national television.
"I thought it would be fun if they could meet right now," Andy told Benjamin as he pointed to the screen at Wyatt.
He continued: "That's going to be your good buddy."
Andy then gushed how much Wyatt "looks just like you, Anderson."
The journalist then showed off his son's outfit of a black and white horizontal striped top and said "it looks like a 1920s bathing suit."
"It really does," Andy concurred.
Anderson admitted Wyatt makes very cute sounds, as Andy promised Benjamin a life of adventures with his new pal.
"You're going to get to travel and if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you're going to be great friends," he said.
Before handing Benjamin off he said "say Happy Father's Day."
The doting dads gushed over Wyatt's "cute" trembling lip and small feet.
Recently, Anderson opened up about how he "cries at things he never cried at before" having Wyatt.
Anderson told People since becoming a father: “I’m more tired than I’ve ever been, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
“I cry at things I never cried at before.
He went on of his ex Benjamin, who will co-parent Wyatt with him: “And Benjamin, I’ve never seen him cry, but I couldn’t believe how weepy he gets with Wyatt.
"I find myself being overwhelmed with emotion, and it’s a lovely thing.”
The new dad added he never thought parenthood would be a possibility for him.
Anderson said: “When I was 12 years old and knew I was gay and thought about my life, it always upset me because I thought, ‘I will never be able to have a kid.'
“This is a dream come true.”
He added how grateful he is for those who came before him, laying the groundwork to make his dreams a reality.
He thanked: “All the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people who struggled for generations and have died never thinking this was a possibility.”
