The CNN star Anderson Cooper's voice was cracking while paying tribute to his late mother on June 17th. He revealed he kissed her every single time when he had to say 'goodbye' and said, "I love you, mom."

I knew it from the moment I was born and I'll know it for the rest of my life and in the end, what greater gift can a mother give to her son.

Cooper was praising his mother like no one else. He was genuinely proud of her personality and the meaning of existing and living next to him as a whole.

Her private self, her real self, that was more fascinating and more lovely than anything she showed the public.

Cooper loved his mother to the moon and back. He was ready to do anything for her and that's why he never let her down.

I always felt it was my job to try to protect her. She was the strongest person I've ever met but she wasn't tough.
