Anderson Cooper shares when he realized he was gay: 'One of the great blessings of my life'
CNN's Anderson Cooper has announced that he is gay, adding that while privacy is important for journalists, he did not want to give the impression he was hiding something and wanted to stand up against bullying. Cooper said in a statement posted on Andrew Sullivan's The Dish blog that he had not disclosed his sexual orientation in a memoir he wrote several years ago as that was focused on war, but he had come to realise he did not want to give "the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something". Cooper, whose sexual identity has long been known within media circles, said he had always believed reporters' political, religious and love lives should not be something they have to discuss publicly. Cooper often travels to war zones and countries where homosexuality is either banned or frowned upon.
Cooper, 52, said on the network that he is eternally grateful for the surrogate who carried, cared for and gave birth to Wyatt Cooper, who was born Monday at 7. It is, I think, especially important in these times of trouble to try to hold on to moments of joy and moments of happiness," the anchor said. So, I just wanted to take a moment and share with you some joyful news of my own: On Monday, I became a father. I am a dad. I have a son, and I want you to meet him," Cooper said before images of the infant were shown.
