Celebrated media personality Larry Madowo has triggered mixed reactions after he shared the news about a gay CNN journalist who recently got a child.
The CNN journalist Anderson Cooper had shared the good news during a live broadcast saying that he never thought he would have a child considering that he was gay. He, however, thanked the surrogate mother who carried his child and thanked everyone who made it possible.
Madowo in a tweet highlighted the news which was clearly not well received by some Kenyans who questioned him on when he plans getting married and a child.
“‘New life and new love.’ Anderson Cooper is a new dad. His voice breaks as he explains why Wyatt Morgan Cooper is special” read his tweet

Based on some of the reactions some seemed more concerned about why the journalist used his platform to share a post that ‘normalizes’ homosexuality. Madowo is one of the personalities who have kept his relationship life under the wraps leaving fans to speculate.
Apart from Larry Madowo, KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua also shared the news as he highlighted his opinion in regard to homosexuality.
“CNN’s Anderson Cooper and his husband yesterday broke the news of their firstborn son Wyatt Morgan Cooper…… But they had to get a normal woman to get pregnant using his normal seed and carry the child in a normal womb and give birth in a normal way….see the warped logic?” he wrote in his post
The subject of homosexuality continues to be a controversial topic especially in Kenya where it is against the law.
Here are some reactions to Madowo’s post
