“People” cover man Anderson Cooper opens up about being dad to baby Wyatt: ‘This is a new level of love’

Love this cover pic – a baby and a bicep!

Anderson Cooper and his son Wyatt are on the cover of People Magazine and these kinds of things always make me take notice. It’s a happy personal story for the CNN anchor and it’s a beautiful message to young gay people that these things are possible – even if you’re single!

“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,’” Cooper says in this week’s PEOPLE cover story for the magazine’s first-ever Pride issue. “This is a dream come true. It feels like my life has actually begun. And I sort of wonder, what was I waiting for? This is a new level of love. It’s unlike anything I’ve experienced, and yet it’s also very familiar and incredibly special and intimate. It’s really extraordinary.”

Cooper says he is also filled with gratitude for “all the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people who struggled for generations and have died never thinking this was a possibility.”
