It is a joy to watch your kid grow up right in front of you. It is the same for Anderson Cooper who celebrated his son Wyatt’s very first birthday. He even shared an adorable post on his Instagram. His post’s caption said, “Today is Wyatt’s first birthday. I can’t believe it has already been a year.”
Sharing with the world
The 53-year-old CNN news anchor put up a post of his little one with a big red balloon in his hand and the cutest smile. He captioned it with a heartfelt message, “He is sweet and funny, happy and kind, and I love him more than I ever thought possible.”
Anderson Cooper’s dear friend Andy Cohen also wished the tiny tot a very happy birthday. He did this by sharing a cute photo of his friend holding the tiny tot, wearing matching flannel shirts. The post was captioned, “Happy 1st Birthday Wyatt Cooper! I love twinning with you. XO Uncle Andy & Mr. Ben.”
More love for my son
Anderson Cooper and his ex-partner, Benjamin Maisani, had welcomed baby Wyatt last year through surrogacy. And even though they are not together anymore, Cooper said that Maisani was no less than a family member. Last year, the news anchor had said, “I don’t really have a family, so my friends have become my family. This is somebody I was involved with for 10 years.”
He further added that his ex-partner was a great guy. He said, “if something happens to me or even if something doesn’t happen to me, if more people love my son and are in his life, I’m all for that.” What a wonderful sentiment! He also uploaded another picture as a throwback photo of Wyatt in a blue footsie. You are bound to sigh at the lovable image.
