Anderson Cooper is one of the most recognizable faces on CNN. The TV reporter is always at the forefront of breaking news and recently made headlines with the birth of his son. Cooper became a father last year when he took in Wyatt through surrogacy. Since then, Wyatt has grown taller and recently made the cover of a popular magazine with his dad that fans can’t get over the cuteness overload.

Cooper shared a photo on Instagram of himself and his son Wyatt. They both had big smiles and seemed to be having the happiest times. The photos are from the cover of People magazine where Cooper explains what prompted him to write a book about his family. “Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty” is the title of the book which the CNN host says is a letter to his son.
In the magazine interview, Cooper expresses how happy his son is as always and a very social person.
“He’s doing this thing where we go to a cafe and he’s going to walk around and look at people, and once they make eye contact with him he’s going to laugh,” Cooper explained. “I like the way he interacts with strangers and takes pleasure in them. I am charmed by everything he does, annoying. And being there when he wakes up and pulls him out of the crib is just the best.

It was April 30, 2020, when Cooper confirmed he had become the father of a baby he named Wyatt Morgan Cooper. The TV reporter shared a post on Instagram with the information giving details of the origin of his son’s name.
“It is named after my father, who died when I was ten years old. I hope I can be as good a father as he is, ”Cooper explained at the time. “My son’s middle name is Morgan. It’s a last name from my mother’s side. I know my mom and dad loved Morgan’s name because I recently found a list they made 52 years ago while they were trying to come up with names for me. Wyatt Morgan Cooper. My son. He weighed 7.2 pounds when he was born, and he’s sweet, sweet and healthy and I’m more than happy. “
