Anderson Cooper receives hand-me-down clothes from Andy Cohen for his son.
The CNN host has revealed the ‘Watch What Happens Live’ star regularly gives him the clothes that his son Ben has outgrown but Anderson admits Wyatt’s style is a lot different from Ben’s.
Speaking on Live! With Kelly and Ryan, Anderson said: “He gets Ben-me-downs as Andy calls them … A lot of the clothes that Andy gets [have] a lot of razzmatazz in them. It’s a lot of tie-dye Grateful Dead stuff, which I don’t know if that’s his vibe at this point, but it doesn’t go with the boys … I see him more as a little Amish child. I would like to dress [him] just simply.”
Meanwhile, Anderson previously admitted he wishes he had become a father sooner.
He said: “I don’t think I would have made the decision if I didn’t feel I was really ready. And I definitely have, yeah, I just feel like this is absolutely what I should be doing.
“And I mean, I wish I had done it sooner and it’s just, it’s extraordinary to me, sort of the amount of, I mean, I’ve been, been able to spend the whole, days. I mean, all my time with him really, during this pandemic and it’s just, it’s been amazing … And I can’t, I’ve never like woken up early in the morning. I now like bolt out of bed at 7:00 without an alarm clock or 6:30.
“And I want to be there when he wakes up at 8:45 and I love, I mean, I just love every aspect of it and it’s just truly the greatest thing ever. And I sort of just feel like I, what was I doing before?”
Anderson also admitted he feels his “life has begun” now he is a father.
He shared: “When I was 12 years old and knew I was gay and thought about my life, it always upset me because I thought, ‘I will never be able to have a kid.’ This is a dream come true.
“It feels like my life has actually begun. There’s something about having a child that makes you feel connected to what is happening and you want to make sure that the world this child is growing up in is a better one. You suddenly worry much more about the future of all of us.”
