Leopold Stanislaus Stokowski is Carter’s Vanderbilt oldest sibling, as he was born in 1950 and is now 72 years old. He is the son of Anthony Stanislaus Stokowski and Gloria Vanderbilt. His father was one of the most popular conductors in the 20th century and became extremely famous after appearing in the Disney movie Fantasia, in the 1940s. His mother was an American artist, actress, fashion designer, author, and socialite. The two got married in April 1945, despite Leopold being 42 years older than Gloria, but divorced five years after Leopold’s birth.

Even though both Leopold’s parents worked in the entertainment industry, he decided to become a businessman and did so successfully. Throughout his career, he has worked both in England and New York. Leopold is in the landscaping business and owns two companies called Sag Harbor, L.I. and New Ground Gardens LLC.

Leopold is believed to have a total net worth of $3 million, which was mainly earned thanks to his landscaping businesses. In fact, although his mother was rich, she left her $1 million real estate to her younger child.

Leopold got married in late 1996 to Emily J. Goldstein. The couple chose to have a small ceremony attended only by close friends and relatives. The wedding was officiated by Charles S. Edwards and took place in a private house in Wainscott, NY. Similarly to Leopold’s parents, the two have quite a huge age gap. Emily is, in fact, 14 years younger than her husband. The couple had their first son in 1998 and decided to call him Myles. But Myles is not Leopold’s only kid.

Before his wedding with Emily, Leopold was married to Ivy Strick. The two got married in June 1981 and had two children, Aurora and Abra. Their firstborn, Aurora, now owns a jewellery business and works as a blogger and writer. Unfortunately, we do not have much information about Abra, who prefers to keep her life private.

Similarly to his father, Cristopher decided to pursue a music career. He attended Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, a hamlet in New York. According to records, in 1974, Christopher fell in love with a young girl called April Sandmayer. The two got engaged three years later but did not end up marrying. In fact, soon after Christopher’s dad died, he started to go to his mother’s therapist. Here, he soon found out that both the therapist and his mother were trying to end his relationship with April before the wedding, which resulted in his girlfriend calling off the engagement.

Christopher never forgave his mother for this. He decided to leave New York to try to convince April to take him back, but he wasn’t successful. In 1978, Christopher cut all his ties with his family as a consequence. However, he decided to get back in contact with his mother in 2016, just before her death.

A post shared by Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper)

Carter Vanderbilt Cooper was Anderson Hays Cooper’s youngest sibling, as he came into the world in 1965. He was born to Gloria Vanderbilt and Wyatt Cooper, a famous screenwriter, author, and actor. His parents got married on December 24, 1963. Gloria was not new to marriage as Wyatt was her fourth husband. The wedding did not last and the two divorced in 1978, following Carter’s tragic death by suicide.

Unfortunately, not much is known about Carter except for his death. According to records, on the morning of July 22, 1988, he unexpectedly arrived at his mother’s office on the 14th floor of an NYC apartment. He told his mom he had just broken up with his girlfriend and wanted to move back home. He later proceeded to take a nap, but when he woke up he was in a confused state. He asked his mother several times ‘What’s going on?’ before jumping out of the window.

At the time, Carter was seeing a therapist, who was shocked by the suicide.

Did You Know?

Commenting on his brother’s death, Anderson Hays Cooper said: Any time you lose a loved one, especially when you’re younger, it alters the trajectory of your life. (…) It’s inconceivable to me that my brother died in 1988 and I’ve lived more of my life without him than I have with him. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about what he would be doing, who he would be, and I still think about his death and have questions about it.”
