Anderson Cooper Doesn’t Plan to Leave Son Wyatt an Inheritance: “I Don’t Believe in Passing On Huge Amounts of Money”

Anderson Cooper‘s son Wyatt will not receive an inheritance, according the CNN anchor.

“I don’t believe in passing on huge amounts of money,” Cooper said on the Morning Meeting podcast.

“I don’t intend to have some sort of pot of gold for my son,” he continued.  “I’ll go with what my parents said…‘College will be paid for, and then you gotta get on it.’”

Cooper’s mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, left her son less than $1.5 million following her death in 2019.  “My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund, there’s none of that,” Cooper said on The Howard Stern Show in 2014.
