Anderson Cooper can’t help but show off his adorable new baby son.
On Monday, the CNN anchor shared two heartwarming pictures of himself and Wyatt, who was born via a surrogate in April.
Anderson, 53, gave an update on his first child, captioning the picture: ‘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 post caused a flurry of comments from fans and friends, including fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg who said that his son ‘looks like Gloria,’ referring to Anderson’s late mother Gloria Vanderbilt, who passed away last June.
Another comment came from his pal Andy Cohen who wrote underneath the snap: ‘Love these daddy.’
Andy, 52, had previously gushed about how much he was looking forward to introducing his 16-month-old son Benjamin to his friend’s baby son Wyatt and how he hopes they become best friends just like their dads.

Recently, it was revealed that the tots have met for the first time, virtually, as due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are unable to meet in person.
During a recent at-home episode of Watch What Happens Live!, Andy told his son: ‘Ben, this is going to be your good buddy Wyatt.
‘You guys are going to travel together. And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you’re going to be great friends.’

The journalist announced the arrival of Wyatt on CNN and later took to Instagram to share photos of the tot and explained the origins of the baby’s name.
He 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.
‘My son’s middle name is Morgan. It’s a family name on my mom’s side. I know my mom and dad liked the name Morgan because I recently found a list they made 52 years ago when they were trying to think of names for me.
‘Wyatt Morgan Cooper. My son. He was 7.2 lbs at birth, and he is sweet, and soft, and healthy and I am beyond happy.’
And Andy – whose son was also born to a surrogate – posted a photo of news anchor Anderson kissing his newborn son and wrote on Instagram: ”New life, new hope!’ Wyatt Cooper, you couldn’t have come at a better time! I know a friend who can’t wait to meet you! [heart emoji] (sic)’
And commenting on Anderson’s own post announcing the birth of his son, Andy wrote: ‘Ben [heart] Wyatt (sic)’
