NFL star Cooper Kupp not only has a successful career but has a flourishing and wondering personal life with his wife Anna and their two children, the youngest of which will turn one on January 17, 2022.
LA Rams star Copper Kupp and his wife married in 2015 and later welcomed two children. Their oldest son Cooper Jamison Kupp Jr. was born on July 3, 2018, while their youngest, Cypress Stellar Kupp, was born on January 17, 2021.
Their two adorable sons regularly make appearances on their parent’s Instagram, and Kupp has spoken about becoming a father in various interviews before.

A month after welcoming his first son, Kupp reflected on the first time he held his son and the sense of blessing and relief he felt to welcome his child into the world.
He gushed that it was the most incredible feeling in the words; however, it was also weird. Kupp explained that as he held newborn Cooper Jr., he felt he was looking at himself from 25 years ago. The NFL star reflected:
“…he was looking back at me, straight into my eyes. And I felt like I was looking back at myself 25 years ago. It was the weirdest, most incredible feeling in the world.”
Kupp and Anna were also open about the pregnancy of their second child and revealed during an interview with the New York Times that they opted to live apart during the last stages of the pregnancy.
Kupp stayed in Southern California and continued to train with the Rams, while Anna and June (Cooper Jr.’s nickname) moved to the couple’s recently purchased home outside Portland, Oregon.
Fortunately, everything worked out as the couple welcomed their second son on January 17, 2021. Anna shared a touching photo on Instagram of the family each laying a hand on the newborn as a way to announce his birth.
A month after Cypress’s arrival, Kupp showed some love for his wife online. Alongside a collection of photos of her, Kupp penned a powerful message and explained he would always fight for his wife and their relationship.
He explained that he thinks “it is taken for granted that your spouse knows… how much you adore them.” However, he did not want to fall into that trap and instead vowed to pursue and fight for their marriage “every moment.”
