Andy Cohen Says He Sent Anderson Cooper's Son Some Baby Clothes and Visited Him from Afar
Andy Cohen opens up about helping his best friend Anderson Cooper with some baby clothes and some parenting tips that might be useful.
Having a great friend is a beautiful feeling. That knowledge that someone can help with some of life's struggles can be a relief to both parties involved.
Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen are always serving best friend goals, and with the birth of Anderson's son a few months ago, the two are excited to have each other's company.
In an exclusive interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Andy Cohen opened up about being excited to see his friend, Anderson Cooper become a father and the means they have used to help each other skip the hurdles of parenting.
He shared that Anderson's son Wyatt has been wearing hand me downs that his one-year-old son Benjamin has outgrown. On if he has been able to see Wyatt, Andy replied saying:
"I have seen him from afar, but I have not gotten to snuggle with him. He is so cute!!"
Andy also mentioned that he and Anderson have been spending a lot of time talking on FaceTime and texting each other. He added that he even shared Benjamin's nanny's contact with Anderson, so their sons have the same nanny.
He wanted him to be a depression-era kid.
Similarly, on an interview on" The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Anderson Cooper shared that the reason his son was wearing hand me downs was because he was inherently cheap and did not know how to go about getting baby things.
The new father also added that he was confused over what to buy for his son and turned to his friend for help. Anderson then said:
"I was planning on going shopping, which I hate to do. And then online shopping, how do you do that for baby clothes? Do you go to Buy Buy Baby or Amazon? I don't know!..."
Anderson also joked that the reason he did not get Wyatt any clothes was that he wanted him to be a depression-era kid who grows up wearing hand me downs.
Both Andy and Anderson are excited and hope that the boys grow up and become friends helping each other out as they do. For Anderson, who thought he could never have kids as a gay child when growing up, Wyatt's birth has left him excited and eager to be a father.

I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father. This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. He is named after my father, who died when I was ten. I hope I can be as good a dad as he was. My son's middle name is Morgan. It's a family name on my mom's side. I know my mom and 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 was 7.2 lbs at birth, and he is sweet, and soft, and healthy and I am beyond happy. As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son's birth. Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing - what she, and all surrogates give to families who cant have children. My surrogate has a beautiful family of her own, a wonderfully supportive husband, and kids, and I am incredibly thankful for all the support they have given Wyatt and me. My family is blessed to have this family in our lives I do wish my mom and dad and my brother, Carter, were alive to meet Wyatt, but I like to believe they can see him. I imagine them all together, arms around each other, smiling and laughing, happy to know that their love is alive in me and in Wyatt, and that our family continues.
