Anderson Cooper Welcomes Baby Boy

Congrats to the new dad!

On April 30, Anderson Cooper hosted his weekly town hall for CNN in which medical professionals, legislators and first responders (and occasionally Sesame Street monsters) come together to discuss the coronavirus pandemic.

But, this town hall was special, because Cooper proudly shared pictures of his newborn baby son!

Born on April 27, Wyatt Morgan Cooper was only a few days old, and the monumental occasion of his birth still has the newscaster bursting with pride.

“On Monday, I became a father. I never actually said that before out loud, and it still kind of astonishes me,” he said with a little laugh. “I am a dad. I have a son, and I want you to meet him.”

Cooper shared pictures of his newborn baby with the audience, and with his followers on social media.
