Andy Cohen wants his son Benjamin to become friends with Anderson Cooper’s newborn baby.
The Watch What Happens Live host was understandably thrilled his best pal welcomed Wyatt Morgan Cooper into the world via surrogate earlier this week.
And he admitted he’s looking forward to introducing the tot to his own little boy, 14-month-old Benjamin.
Andy – whose son was also born to a surrogate – shared a photo of Anderson kissing his newborn son on Instagram and wrote: ‘”New life, new hope!” Wyatt Cooper, you couldn’t have come at a better time! I know a friend who can’t wait to meet you! (sic)’
And commenting on Anderson’s own post announcing the birth of his son, Andy wrote: ‘Ben [heart] Wyatt (sic)’.
Anderson announced his happy news on CNN on Thursday (April 30) and later took to Instagram to share photos of the tot and explained the origins of the baby’s name.

The news anchor continued: ‘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.’
