Andy Cohen decided to “piss off” his bestie Anderson Cooper. No, he didn’t crank call him while Anderson was in the middle of an interview with, like, Christiane Amanpour live from the streets of the Belarus protests. He posted a shirtless picture of Anderson to his Instagram. I never! How dare he! As the world is fully aware and has never suggested otherwise. Nothing upsets a hot-bodied dude more than a thirst trap!
Anderson Cooper is over the moon! While he may not have used those words exactly, given his participation in the venerated tradition of showing off your new baby on the cover of People Magazine, over-the-mooness is strongly implied. Hey, if it’s good enough for “Snooki’s Jersey Boy”, then it’s good enough for Anderson’s little “Dream Come True!”
Last week we learned that Anderson Cooper had become a father after a surrogate gave birth to his first son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper. And as far as anyone knew, Anderson was single. Which I’m sure made a whole lot of gay dudes research how to apply to become the Grace Farrell to Anderson’s Daddy Warbucks (step one: lean very hard into purple). Then those rich eligible DILF dreams were dashed when it was rumored 52-year-old Anderson had gotten back together with his ex, 47-year-old club owner Benjamin Maisani. Well, it’s not actually too late. Anderson recently cleared up any speculation into his private life, and while Benjamin remains in the picture, it’s not as his partner.
Last week Anderson Cooper warmed our cold corona-hearts when he unexpectedly revealed he’d become a first-time daddy (alas, Allison already made the sexy daddy/baby daddy joke). His son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, was born via surrogate last Monday. Anderson shared the news on Instagram and in an announcement on his CNN show, Anderson Cooper 360°. And Anderson and the nannies may be getting help with changing diapers and telling little Wyatt, “There’s nothing to cry about, you’re RICH!“, whenever the kid scream cries. Us Weekly claims that before Wyatt’s birth, Anderson got back with his ex, club owner Benjamin Maisani. Ben and Anderson dated for nine years before breaking up in early 2018.
Well here’s a coronavirus quarantine surprise I don’t think many of us saw coming. Anderson Cooper has officially made the transition from handsome silver news daddy to…well, okay, he’s still that. But now he’s also a literal father.
Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen did what they’ve been doing for three years for CNN on New Year’s Eve: bore everyone! And they also got drunk and talked shit, and one of their drunken comments led to them ending up on the shit list of the fans of Korean pop group BTS.
