Anderson Cooper Sings Adorable Song With Andy Cohen's Son

Cooper has had enough of Clappy the Monkey.

Your two favorite famous playground dads are at it again. On Dec. 6, Andy Cohen shared a playful video of his son, Benjamin Cohen, and Anderson Cooper enjoying a musical monkey toy together. However, things quickly take a turn when Benjamin scurries away, leaving Cooper alone with the taunting toy. For further details on this adorable play date, read on, and for more on Cooper, discover The One Guest Anderson Cooper Banned From His Show.

The video posted by Cohen shows Cooper singing and clapping to "If You're Happy and You Know It," coming from a stuffed monkey named Clappy, as Benjamin happily claps along as well. Cooper is an excellent sport, even putting on a special voice to sing with the monkey. However, Benjamin eventually gets bored and moves on, leaving Cooper and Clappy alone.

"It's just you and Clappy, Anderson," Cohen says jokingly. Cooper faces the monkey, and the monkey says, "Clappy loves you this much," to which Cooper responds, "I'm not sure." Reassuringly, the monkey shoots back, "Really!"

When Benjamin comes back looking for another round of Clappy sing-alongs, Cooper starts the monkey up again. "Clap your hands with Clappy—that's me," the monkey says. "Yeah, I know," says Cooper, feigning annoyance.

Cohen cheekily captioned the video, "Spending A LOT of time with Clappy this morning. (AC and I have some issues with Clappy that we can get into at a later date … )"

This isn't the first time this dynamic dad duo has made everyone on the internet smile. Here are four more adorable fatherhood moments between Cooper and Cohen, and for more celebrity baby news, Mindy Kaling Just Defended Her Children's "Caucasian Names" on Instagram.
