Anderson Cooper is one of the most popular news anchors in the world.
But admittedly, with that much attention, he sometimes gets some bad press - such as people thinking he eats babies...
Now, Anderson Cooper was born into a prominent New York City family in 1967.
During his time there, he decided to go off on his own venture.

Cooper has had an extremely lucrative career in journalism...
In 1994, he landed one of his biggest gigs yet.
However, in 2000, Cooper's career took a slight detour.The star made the decision to leave news reporting to host ABC’s prime-time reality television show The Mole.
In 2001, he took the job as a reporter for CNN...
Of course, he didn't stop there...
But, in 2005, Cooper well and truly caught the world's attention.The journalism veteran received national attention for his reporting on the devastation to the U.S. Gulf Coast caused by Hurricane Katrina.
And as for his personal life?EW.
He continued:"And then, with Twitter and the internet, suddenly you could access something about anybody. And the expectation became, ‘You’re a public person, you should be public.’ And in the world of journalism, that was kind of still… I don’t know. It was a difficult thing to navigate. "I was traveling in the Middle East a lot. I spent most of my early years in war zones. And I’d gone to a lot of countries where it’s illegal and where, at the time, I had no security. I was by myself in Somalia and all these places and it was just easier not to say something. But I reached a point where, by not saying something, I realized I was saying something. Oftentimes you hear, ‘Well why should I have to come out? I’m open in my private life. I’m not hiding anything. I never pretended.’ But it does make a difference."
He went on to reveal that he "forgot" to tell his mom.
The news anchor took to Instagram to share a touching post with his fans."I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father," he wrote. "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."
He then revealed his son's name.And the meaning behind it is truly heartwarming.
Cooper has thrown himself into fatherhood...
via: GettyAnd recently revealed how he wishes he wouldn't have held off parenthood for so long.
During an appearance on SiriusXM's Quarantined with Bruce on Friday, he spoke about his new life as a dad...
Becoming a father has also given Cooper a new perspective, he feels "invested in the future in a way [he] hadn't really before."
Although he admitted he has been "more tired than [he's] ever been" becoming a dad.
He even admitted in June that he would love to expand his family, but understandably needs some rest first!
"I need to probably sleep a little bit more and clear my head, but I think it would be great, one day, to have a brother or sister for Wyatt," he said.
We can't wait to see what the future holds!
Anderson is one of the most popular reporters in the world.
And almost everyone on the planet knows his face.
But with mass popularity, also comes some negative attention.
And recently a former QAnon member apologised to Cooper for believing that he ate babies before...
Cooper was interviewing him about QAnon conspiracies.
And the former QAnon member, Jitarth Jadeja, spoke about how many of them believe high level democrats and celebrities drink the blood of children...
Jaderja then added that for a while he believed Cooper did the same.
Anderson, I thought you did that. And I would like to apologize for that right now. So I apologize for thinking that you ate babies. But yeah, a hundred percent.
It's because Q specifically mentioned you and he mentioned you very early on. He mentioned you by name and from there he also talked about, for example, your family. But yeah, I'm going to be honest, people still talk about that to this day.
