If there are two men in this world who deserve all of the goodness and light (and sure, the dirty diapers) that come with becoming a parent, it’s friends Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen.

The two are best friends in real life, and on Father’s Day, thought they should get the boys together to meet for the first time. Both men work in journalism, both became parents later in life, and, it turns out, they have the same nanny – thanks to Cohen’s generosity.


Cohen’s son Benjamin was 16 months old when he met 2-month-old Wyatt Cooper.

“I thought it would be fun if they met right now,” Cohen said. “Look, that’s gonna be your good buddy Wyatt.”

Cooper informed his son he was meeting Benjamin, and then the adults discussed Wyatt’s adorable outfit, as one does.

They went on to have a chat about how they were sure the boys would be great friends in the future.

“Ben, this is Wyatt. This is Wyatt Cooper. He’s gonna be your good buddy and we’re gonna travel together.

And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you’re gonna be great friends.”

The two played a quick, fun game about who knew each other better, agreeing that Cooper was more likely to be the helicopter parent, even though he’s “hoping not to be.”

Cohen even handed over his nanny in support of his friend becoming a parent for the first time at 52, saying that he had planned to transition away from her, but that it seemed right because she’d been so great for him with a newborn.

I don’t know about you, but I have new friendship goals!

For right now it’s Cohen and Cooper the elder, but when those two cutie boys grow up, I bet they’re going to give their dads a run for their money in every sense of the word.
