Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen celebrated their birthdays on Wednesday, with the help of their fellow celebrity friends.
Cohen posted an Instagram video of the celebration showing the longtime friends blowing out birthday candles on their matching cakes.
He captioned the post, “Gemini Twins: ACTIVATE! Happy Birthday to my friend, AC2 partner, and brilliant Daddy. Our lives are all better with you in them, Anderson. (Thanks to the Consuelos’ for the cakes; and to SJ, Liza, & Bruce for the surprise party!)”
Cooper also took to Instagram for birthday fun. He posted a throwback photo of him and Cohen with the caption, “Happy Birthday @bravoandy! So proud of all you’ve done, the person you are, and the dad you’ve become!”
Cooper and Cohen first met in the early ’90s. The two had been set up to go on a blind date but never made it beyond a phone call. The two ended up becoming longtime friends instead.
“We’ve gotten much closer since I’ve had the talk show and since we’ve been on tour together. I mean we’ve been friends for 25 years,” Cohen said of Cooper during a 2019 interview with USA Today. “He’s just an incredibly loyal and caring and sensitive and great friend.”
