Remember The Adorable Photo Of Anderson Cooper’s Son Wyatt Seeing Him On TV For The First Time? This New One Is Better

Anderson Cooper turned 54-years-old this year and is sharing the best gift he got this year — and to give you a hint, he’s pretty cute.

Cooper shared his appreciation for the love given on his special day by sharing a sweet photo to Instagram with his son, Wyatt.

In the photo, the one-year-old grins while and sitting alongside his father outside by the pool.

“Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes!” Cooper captioned the photo to Instagram. “I am really touched by all the kind thoughts. Getting to see my little boy’s joy-filled face every day, and watching him grow, is the best present I could ever receive.”

The besties had a joint surprise party, thrown by their close friends.

“Gemini Twins: ACTIVATE! Happy Birthday to my friend, AC2 partner, and brilliant Daddy. Our lives are all better with you in them, Anderson. (Thanks to the Consuelos’ for the cakes; and to SJ, Liza, & Bruce for the surprise party!)” Cohen captioned a video of the two getting their birthday cakes while at a restaurant.

The two have bonded even more as dads. Cohen, who is father to Benjamin, 2, joked during an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Ryan in May how Cooper getting all the “Ben-me-downs.”

“But they’re such different styles, your kids,” Kelly Ripa noted.

“Well, that’s the thing. A lot of the clothes that Andy gets have a lot of razz-a-ma-tazz in them,” Cooper said.

“There’s a lot of tie-dye Grateful Dead stuff, which, I don’t know that that’s Wyatt’s vibe at this point.”

But last year Cohen told ET, “[Wyatt] is wearing all of Ben’s hand-me-downs, and he’s got a great wardrobe ready for him. It is so funny because I just sent Anderson a picture of Ben in his pajamas this morning, and I said, ‘Do you like these?’ He goes, ‘I love them, I can’t wait!'”
