Anderson Cooper Gets Emotional As He Makes Surprise Announcement That He Just Became A Father

@CNN/Twitter



Anderson Cooper has always been a silver-fox daddy type, but recently, the CNN anchor became a father.


Wyatt Morgan Cooper was born on April 27th, 2020, weighing 7 lbs and 2 oz.

As Anderson came on air to announce the birth of his child, he said "On Monday, I became a father."

"I've never said that out loud and it astonishes me."

He also shared more photos of his newborn baby boy on Instagram.


Cooper rarely gets emotional on air, and so the sheer emotion that came through when he talked about his newborn son had the internet crying right along with him.





Cooper also says that he "never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I am so grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son's birth."





He also expressed his gratitude to the "remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, watched over him lovingly, tenderly, and gave birth to him."




Thank you, Anderson Cooper, for paving the way for more gay men to become fathers.
