Anderson Cooper is officially 54 years old. And he’s opening up to fans about the best present he got this year.

To show his appreciation for all of the love he received on his big day, the CNN anchor shared a post on Instagram featuring himself and his son, Wyatt. In the snap, the recently-turned one-year-old smiles and sits alongside his father outside by the pool. (We can’t believe how big he’s getting.)

“Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes!” Cooper captioned the photo on IG. “I am really touched by all the kind thoughts. Getting to see my little boy’s joy-filled face every day, and watching him grow, is the best present I could ever receive.”

Followers quickly filled the comments section with well-wishes for the TV personality. One user wrote, “Happy Birthday AC!!!! We love you Coop!!!!!” while another added, “You do have the best present ever .. being a parent. Happy Birthday!” His longtime BFF and birthday twin, Andy Cohen, even wrote, “Love you guys!”

In addition to his sweet comment, Cohen also shared a tribute to his friend on his personal social media account.

“Gemini Twins: ACTIVATE! Happy Birthday to my friend, AC2 partner, and brilliant Daddy. Our lives are all better with you in them, Anderson," Cohen wrote alongside a video of the duo celebrating at a combined gathering.

Per Entertainment Tonight, the besties had a joint surprise party “thrown by their close friends.”

Happy birthday, Anderson. We can’t wait for more snaps of your best present ever.
