AceShowbiz - Andy Cohen knew how to make the first birthday of close pal Anderson Cooper's little boy, Wyatt Morgan, extra sweet. On Tuesday, April 27, the "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" host shared on his Instagram account a cute photo of him and the birthday boy twinning in flannel shirts.
"Happy 1st Birthday Wyatt Cooper! I love twinning with you. XO Uncle Andy & Mr. Ben," the 52-year-old TV personality wrote in the caption of the post he shared on the photo-sharing platform. Along with the congratulatory message, he offered fans and followers a look at little Wyatt sitting on his lap.

As for Anderson, the CNN news anchor posted a heartwarming tribute to his growing son. "Today is Wyatt's first birthday," the 53-year-old television journalist wrote. "I can't believe it has already been a year. He is sweet and funny, happy and kind, and i love him more than I ever thought possible." The sweet tribute was accompanied with two cute photos of Wyatt.

Wyatt Morgan is Anderson's first child through surrogate. The journalist first announced the arrival of his son in late April 2020. "I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father. This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. My son. He was 7.2 lbs at birth, and he is sweet, and soft, and healthy and I am beyond happy," he wrote on Instagram.
Anderson also thanked doctors, nurses and surrogate mother who made it possible for him to have a child. "As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child," he said. "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."
