CNN Anchor, Anderson Cooper, Welcomes Baby Boy Via Surrogate (Photos)
CNN News anchor, Anderson Cooper has welcomed a baby boy.
The 52 year old who came out as a gay in 2012, welcomed his son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, via surrogate on Tuesday April 28.
The elated new dad shared the news of his son’s birth on Instagram on Thursday April 30, alongside a slideshow of photos of the newborn.
Cooper shared that he never thought fatherhood would be a possibility for him while he was growing up. He added that he wishes his parents and brother were alive to meet Wyatt who he says is named after his 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.” he wrote”.
