Voditelj CNN Anderson Kuper postao je otac u 52. godini, a ponosni tata poručio je da je u ovako teško doba potrebno držati se za one momente koji nas čine srećnim.
Anderson je objavio fotografiju na kojoj drži svog tri dana starog sina, te u emotivnoj objavi napisao da je mali Vajat Kuper, težak na rođenju 3,2 kilograma, ime dobio po njegovom ocu, koji je umro kada je Anderson imao samo 10 godina.
“Nadam se da ću biti dobar otac kao i on. Moj sin je sladak, mekan, zdrav i ja sam presrećan. Kao gej dete nikad nisam mislio da ću postati otac”, napisao je on te zahvalio svima koji su tako nešto u današnje vreme omogućili.
Napisao je i da je zahvalan svim lekarima i medicinskim sestrama koji su bili na rođenju njegovog sina, ali i surogat majci koja ga je donela na svet.
“Surogat majka koja je mog sina donela na svet ima prelepu porodicu, muža i decu koji su njoj, ali i nama pružili veliku podršku. Blagosloveni smo što ovu porodicu imamo u našim životima”, dodao je voditelj.
Vest je, prenosi CNN za gledaoce bila veliko iznenađenje, jer Kuper nije javno govorio o tome da želi da ima decu.

I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father. This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. He is named after my father, who died when I was ten. I hope I can be as good a dad as he was. My son's middle name is Morgan. It's a family name on my mom's side. I know my mom and dad liked the name morgan because I recently found a list they made 52 years ago when they were trying to think of names for me. Wyatt Morgan Cooper. My son. He was 7.2 lbs at birth, and he is sweet, and soft, and healthy and I am beyond happy. As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son's birth. Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing – what she, and all surrogates give to families who cant have children. My surrogate has a beautiful family of her own, a wonderfully supportive husband, and kids, and I am incredibly thankful for all the support they have given Wyatt and me. My family is blessed to have this family in our lives I do wish my mom and dad and my brother, Carter, were alive to meet Wyatt, but I like to believe they can see him. I imagine them all together, arms around each other, smiling and laughing, happy to know that their love is alive in me and in Wyatt, and that our family continues.
