Who is Anderson Cooper’s son Wyatt?

Anderson Cooper announced on the air on April 30, 2020, that he had become a father.

The commentator shared his child with the world in an Instagram post.

"This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. He is named after my father, who died when I was ten," Cooper wrote.

"I hope I can be as good a dad as he was."

Cooper explained that he had his child through surrogate.

"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," Cooper wrote.

"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 can't have children."

Ahead of Wyatt's first birthday, Cooper posted an Instagram photo of his child watching his father host Jeopardy!

"Wyatt has never watched tv before, and he won't again for a long time, but apparently he caught a bit of me on @Jeopardy!" Cooper wrote on the social media platform.

"It was a dream come true to be guest hosting, and to pay tribute to #AlexTrebek and raise money for @hashaiti."

Cooper is raising Wyatt with his former partner, businessman Benjamin Maisani.

The pair started dating in 2009 and were together for nine years before confirming they had split in 2018.

At the time of the breakup, Cooper told ET online: "Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago, we are still family to each other, and love each other very much."
