Chris and Andrew Cuomo react to the internet's crush on the #CuomoBrothers


The Cuomo brothers are taking their newfound popularity in stride. Chris and Andrew Cuomo have both become more prevalent public figures since the start of the coronavirus outbreak last month.

Chris, 49, who tested positive for COVID-19 last month, hosts his CNN show, Cuomo Prime Time, and often interviews his brother, Andrew, 62, the governor of New York.

A source close to Chris tells ET, “The brothers are aware of the ‘Cuomo Crush’ and #CuomoBrothers. They think it’s cute and playful. Although, Chris doesn’t understand why people think Andrew is so handsome," the source jokingly adds.

Despite the Internet's obsession with the two public figures, they're not letting their popularity distract them from the work at hand.

"Both brothers know the responsibility they have during this global crisis and they take their jobs seriously," the source adds. "Chris has lighthearted moments during interviews with his brother, but isn’t afraid to ask him tough questions and hold him accountable. They both respect what the other does. And both are extremely proud of one another despite the ribbing.”

Chris is still recovering from the coronavirus in his Long Island, New York home with his wife, Cristina, and their three kids.

Another source recently told ET that Chris takes his job and interviewing his brother "very seriously."
