Anderson Cooper has someone special helping him with his dad duties!
The CNN host recently shared the exciting news that his baby boy arrived into the world.
Ever since becoming a father to Wyatt Morgan Cooper, the 52-year-old star has opened up about his new parenthood journey and how he plans to raise his newborn son with his ex-partner, Benjamin Maisani.
Speaking to Howard Stern, Cooper explained why it’s important for him to have Benjamin play a role in his little one’s life.
“I don’t really have a family, and so my friends become my family. And this is somebody that I was involved with for 10 years, he’s a great guy,” Anderson said of his ex and why they’re co-parenting Wyatt together.
He added, “We didn’t work out as a couple… but when I was a little kid, it was just my mom and my brother. But it was my mom and she was not the most parental person and I wish some adult, after my dad died, had stepped in.”
