Silver Fox becomes a Dad


You’ve got to get up pretty early to surprise me with a story.  Actually, you only need to be up before 1PM!  Still, I was surprised to hear that Anderson Cooper had a boy – and I don’t mean “had a boy” in that icky way.  He actually sired a child…via surrogate (there’s only so many surprises I can take).  The silver fox announced that after years of being called a “Daddy”, he was an actual daddy to Wyatt Morgan Cooper.  “On Monday, I became a father.  I never actually said that before out loud, and it still kind of astonishes me.  I’m a dad.  I have a son, and I want you to meet him,” Cooper said as he showed a photo to his international audience.

As if that wasn’t enough, reports indicate that Anderson reunited with his ex-beau, Benjamin Maisani.  The two split up in 2018 amidst reports of certain indiscretions.  We hear that Anderson was on the dad train well before the reconciliation, and he’s taking things slowly with Ben.  According to US Weekly, “Ben is selling one of his clubs and cutting back on how much he does at night so he can spend more time at home with Anderson and the baby.”  It’s kinda easy to cut back on club work when all the clubs are closed.  But it’s the thought that counts.

Many people are giving Andy Cohen credit for inspiring Coop to become a dad, but he’s working towards a more lasting legacy.  After recovering from Covid-19, Andy was shocked to learn that gay males are unable to donate blood plasma.  “I was told that due to antiquated and discriminatory guidelines by the FDA to prevent HIV, I am ineligible to donate blood because I’m a gay man.”  Cohen added, “There have been great strides in testing for HIV since these rules were enacted.  You can get an HIV test in 20 minutes.”  He’s advocating for a change in the laws.
