‘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!),’ Andy captioned the video. 

Andy and Anderson have been friends for years after the two were originally set up on a blind date.

The two never went out after Andy broke Anderson’s ‘cardinal rule’ during a phone call setting up their date – he asked him a question about his famous mother Gloria Vanderbilt.  That, however, didn’t stop them from becoming friends.

Anderson recalled the phone call during a joint appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with Andy, saying he knew within 45 seconds that the future Bravo star was not for him.  

‘So we were set up on a blind date. We had a phone call to set up the date, I was a young reporter at ABC, he was at CBS, and I knew within 45 seconds I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen.

‘I imagined him on like a Bluetooth headset, gesticulating, he was all excited. And he violated my cardinal rule, which is that he asked me about my mom within a minute of talking to him.’

‘I wanted to date the Vanderbilt guy! I was excited!’ Andy said.
