In March 2008, it was reported that Cook and Andersen would be expecting their first child in September. Their son, Mekhai, was born in 2008. Mekhai makes a brief appearance as Henry LaMontagne in Criminal Minds, when Cook's character is buying children's medicine from a pharmacy. He reprised the role in the two-hour season seven finale in 2012 and several other episodes throughout the series. In March 2015, Cook and Andersen announced they were expecting a second child. The couple's second son, Phoenix Sky, was born in July 2015.

Cook is best friends with actress Meghan Ory.
