NEW YORK — They were both born into the spotlight. 

Andrew and Chris Cuomo are the sons of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo. The liberal Democrat gained national attention at the 1984 convention, telling President Ronald Reagan in his keynote speech “ "Mr. President, you ought to know that this nation is more a 'Tale of Two Cities' than it is just a 'Shining City on a Hill.'”

And his kids have made quite the name for themselves, as well.

Andrew Cuomo is New York’s current governor. In recent weeks, he has engaged in public battles with President Trump over how New York – and the nation – should be responding to the pandemic. And his popularity has soared.

Chris Cuomo is a lawyer and a hard-hitting liberal host on CNN, whose brush with COVID-19 has been much more personal. He contracted the virus along with his wife and son. They’re all recovering.

Now, it seems their national profiles have turned them into hot commodities – with the ladies.

According to New York’s Daily News, a professional matchmaker says her clients consider the Cuomo brothers more desirable than the Jonas brothers.

Maureen Tara Nelson told the newspaper she conducts a non-scientific survey of her more than 2,000 clients to figure out who’s topping the irresistible charts.

“It’s a fun contest that gets the ladies in the mood for spring love and helps me to get to know them better by knowing what they like and what they don’t like when it comes to their future matches,” Nelson said.

But only one of the brothers is actually available.

Chris Cuomo is married with three kids.

Andrew Cuomo is divorced.
