Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper have much in common and their special bond is evident to see. They are good friends and even share a nanny for their sons. They have the same initials and their birthdays are one year and one day apart. Andy Cohen was born on June 2, 1968, and is preparing to celebrate his 52nd birthday. Anderson Cooper was born on June 3, 1967, and is turning 53-years-old. The similarities between the two Andies are astounding nad many have even questioned if the two are in a relationship. Though Andy and Anderson were once set up on a blind date together, they have publicly stated that they aren’t dating and aren’t a couple. These Gemini brothers have so much in common, that it may just be they are so similar they aren’t attracted to each other romantically.
Andy Cohen surprised people when he announced he was having a baby via a surrogate and was becoming a single dad. Andy Cohen welcomed his son Benjamin Allen (a family name) on February 4, 2019. Benjamin is the spitting image of his father and the two look like twins in their baby photos.
In a similar fashion, Anderson Cooper shocked everyone when he welcomed his son Wyatt Cooper (another family name) on April 27, 2020. It’s unclear at this point if Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen used the same surrogate to birth their sons, but at this point, it wouldn’t be surprising.
There are even reports that Wyatt is wearing Benjamin’s hand-me-downs and it appears that the sons may become as close friends as their fathers are.

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.
