Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper had a fun and family-filled weekend together with their kids, and fortunately they took us along for the ride on their social media. 

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

In recent weeks, the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host has given fans glimpses at how he spends his days outside the Bravo Clubhouse and he just gave us another peek at his off-duty life. He took us inside his father-and-son playdate with his son, Ben Cohen, and Anderson with his kids, as well as an epic birthday celebration for Andy's daughter, Lucy Cohen.

On April 27, Andy took to Instagram to share a charming photo of him and Anderson with their sons, Ben and Wyatt, respectively. The snap showed both dads cheekily smiling next to each other as they carried their sons on their shoulders. 

“Every day is Father’s Day!” Andy captioned the post. Anderson also got in on the social media fun by posting the same picture with the caption: “Hanging out with [Andy Cohen] and the little ones. No better way to spend the day.”

A day later, the fathers reunited to celebrate Andy’s daughter, Lucy’s, 2nd birthday. Of course, the WWHL host pulled out all the stops for his baby girl’s special day as he held a party at Complete Playground in New York City.

While Andy didn’t spoil any of the party décor, he did provide his followers a look at some of the venue’s play areas. “This place is incredible!” Andy noted on his Instagram Story. He also posted a selfie of himself and Anderson from Lucy’s bash, writing under their snap, “Birthday Party Dads.”

The birthday love for Lucy didn’t stop there! On April 29, Andy returned to his social feed to share a heartwarming message for his growing daughter in honor of her special day. “Lucy is Two!” Andy captioned a photo of himself holding Lucy in one arm and No. 2 balloon in his other hand.

It is so exciting getting to know my daughter; she’s a smart, funny sweetheart who surprises me every day. And the female energy Lucy is shining all over this house is welcome and needed! It’s getting really fun over here!” he wrote. “Marking time through the filter of my children’s growth is blowing my mind at this later stage of my life. Everything feels on double-time but it’s also, as [Hoda Kotb] says, right on time.”

Of course, Lucy received lots of birthday love and wishes from her dad’s followers and good friends, including The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice, who commented, “Happy Birthday Princess,” and The Real Housewives of Dubai’s Lesa Milan wrote, “Happy birthday Lucy!!!” 

Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s friendship through the years 

Andy and Anderson have been close friends for over two decades. They originally met back in the ‘90s after their friends attempted to set them up on a blind date. 

“We had a phone call to set up the date,” Anderson revealed on The Tonight Show in 2017. “I knew within 45 seconds I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen.”

While love didn't work out for Andy and Anderson, they were able to build a strong friendship. Since becoming BFFs, the duo have basically been inseparable as they've co-headlined a tour, gone on epic playdates with their kids, and even co-hosted New Year's Eve Live
