Anderson Cooper is one of CNN’s most recognizable faces. The TV reporter is always at the center of the latest 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 put on weight and recently graced the cover of a popular magazine with his dad whose fans can’t get over cuteness overload.

Cooper shared a photo on Instagram of himself and his son Wyatt. They both had big smiles and looked like they were having the best time. The photos are from the cover of People magazine where Cooper explains what led 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 his son is always so happy and is a very social person.
“He does this thing where we go to a coffee shop and he walks around and looks at people, and once they make eye contact with him, he’ll laugh,” Cooper explained. “I love the way he interacts with strangers and delights in them. I’m charmed by everything he does, boring. And being there when he wakes up and getting him out of the crib is just the best.

It’s that smile that Wyatt has that has been contagious. After Cooper posted the Instagram post, the CNN star’s fans were quick to react to the photos’ cuteness overload.
Another CNN colleague, Ana Navarro, said, “Okay. I want to hug this baby.
“He looks a lot like his grandma… So cute,” one fan noted.

“Love Wyatt looks so happy, love your AC360 show,” one Instagram user posted.
“Beautiful pictures. He is so adorable and those beautiful eyes!” another fan mentioned.
“I’m going to read this book. I love these adorable photos,” another follower commented.
“Such a strong resemblance to your beautiful mother,” another Instagram user said.
As you noticed, my fans also pointed out that Wyatt has all the Vanderbilt genes and Cooper also acknowledged that his son reminded him of his brother Carter.
“I started to realize how much Wyatt looks like Carter, who looked like my mother,” the published author told People. “It’s just this amazing feeling of connecting with people who aren’t there anymore and connecting with the past. I really didn’t expect that.

How did the CNN host announce the birth of his son?
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 an Instagram post with the news giving details of where his son’s name came from.
“It is named after my father, who died when I was ten. I hope I can be as good a dad as he is,” Cooper explained at the time. “My son’s middle name is Morgan. It’s a last name on my mom’s side. I know my mom and my 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 weighed 7.2 lbs. at birth, and he’s soft, gentle and healthy and I’m more than happy.
Since then, Cooper has occasionally shared moments with his son, allowing his fans to see how Wyatt is growing.
