Anderson’s birthday surprise

It’s tough for our staff to surprise Anderson for his birthday. First, he knows it’s coming. And, he’s traveled the world, met the most fascinating people and lives a pretty exciting life.

We had to beat last year’s dog and pony show. One idea jumped out at us: Turtleman. And Cake Boss. Together. Check out a few behind-the-scenes pictures and come back to the blog for more on Monday!

See what happened during the show when Ernie and Mauro delivered their birthday gifts. After you watch, wish Anderson a Happy Birthday on twitter @AndersonCooper!

    Happy Birthday Anderson!! I've been watching your show for years (AC360) and now I'm also watching ANDERSON. I love the way you LAUGH, craziest laugh I've ever heard in my life!! Also, you have such great guests and subjects. Hope your day was filled with lots of good cheer, great food, and lots of love because you deserve it. Many prayers for continued happiness!
