Married life, Husband and Children

On July 2, 2012, Anderson surprised his admirers by revealing that he is gay. When he allowed Andrew Sullivanting to disclose, the news made the first page, and I’ve started to wonder if the unforeseen consequences of safeguarding my anonymity outweigh personal and professional principles. It’s become evident to me that by being silent for so long about certain areas of my personal life, I’ve given the impression to others that I’m trying to hide something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed, or even terrified. This is upsetting because it is simply not correct…. I’m homosexual, and I’ve always been and always will be, and I couldn’t be happier, more at ease with myself, or more proud of myself.

Anderson eventually fell in love with Benjamin Maisani, a long-time boyfriend. However, in March 2018, the pair called it quits. Cooper is also the surrogate father to Wyatt Morgan, who will be born on April 27, 2020. Cooper and Maisani aren’t married, but they hope to co-parent the child.
