He has been open about co-parenting with his former longtime partner,Benjamin Maisani, whom he dated for more than a decade before their split in 2018.

But the two exes remained good friends and both remain committed to being dads to their two boys.

The duo first met when their mutual friends tried to set them up on a blind date in the 1990s, but they never got together due to Cooper calling it off after they talked on the phone.

The two TV stars first met when their mutual friends tried to set them up on a blind date but Cooper called it off after he chatted with Cohen on the phone; ultimately they reconnected a few years later and have become close friends ever since

'We had a phone call to set up the date, and I knew within 45 seconds I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen,' the news journalist revealed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. 'He violated my cardinal rule, which is he asked me about my mom [Gloria Vanderbilt] within the first minute of talking to me.'

'I wanted to date the Vanderbilt boy! I was excited!' Cohen explained. Cooper ended up canceling the date.

While a romance between the two men didn't blossom they did connect as friendsa few years later when they both joined the same group that would travel together and ultimately became close friends.
