Cooper, 53, posted a photo of (almost) 1-month-old Wyatt, watching him guest host the show.
Wyatt can be seen sitting on the bed — looking at the screen, solely focused on his dad.
“Wyatt has never watched tv before, and he won’t again for a long time, but apparently he caught a bit of me on @Jeopardy!” Cooper captioned the photo.
“It was a dream come true to be guest hosting, and to pay tribute to #AlexTrebek and raise money for @hashaiti.”
Last Saturday, Jeopardy!‘s official Twitter account revealed a sneak peek at Cooper’s episodes.
In the short clip, Cooper went on to share his close ties to the show. “In high school I became a Jeopardy! fan, I’m a two-time Celebrity Jeopardy! champ and this week, I’ll be the newest Jeopardy! guest host,” he shared.
And surprisingly enough, despite Cooper being a seasoned personality — he admitted he was “actually kind of nervous.”
During the two weeks of the show — Cooper will additionally be raising money for Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti, an organization that helps residents of Haiti’s Artibonite Valley get the medical care they need.
Jeopardy! previously announced that a series of stars will join the show as guest hosts after Ken Jennings stepped in as the first guest host for six weeks, followed by Jeopardy! executive producer Mike Richards after Alex Trebek‘s death in November.
Katie Couric was the first in the roster of celebrity guest hosts, which has been rotating every two weeks before a full-time host is announced. After Cooper’s time is complete, other celebrities, including Savannah Guthrie and Mayim Bialik, will take their swing at hosting.
