Anderson Cooper Announces the Birth of His Second Son

Anderson Cooper Announces the Birth of His Second Son

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper opened up about his personal life by announcing the birth of his second child.

The 54-year-old shared the news during his CNN show “Anderson Cooper 360.” He also revealed that his sons would be adopted by his “best friend and former partner,” Benjamin Maisani.

“I wanted to start out with some good news, which also happens to be very personal news,” Cooper said on Thursday’s show.

Cooper recalled that he had announced the birth of his first son, Wyatt, during the “early dark days of the pandemic” in April 2020. While showing pictures of Wyatt as a newborn, he also showed a current photo of the almost 22-month-old toddler and informed the audience that he is now a big brother.

“This is Wyatt today. He is nearly 22 months old. He is sweet, funny, and the greatest joy of my life. If he looks particularly happy in this picture, it’s because he now has a baby brother. His name is Sebastian, and I would like you to meet him,” Cooper explained as he introduced his new son to the world. 

“This is Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper. He was 6.8 pounds at birth, and he was healthy and happy, and even his occasional hiccups are, to me, adorable. He mostly just sleeps and eats and certainly poops, but he already seems like a wise and thoughtful little chap.”

Cooper also added that he is raising his children with his ex-partner Benjamin Maisani.

“Wyatt calls me ‘daddy’ and Benjamin ‘papa,” he said. “We’re a family. Benjamin is also in the process of adopting Wyatt, whose last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper as well.”

Cooper also announced that he would be taking the next couple of weeks off to enjoy spending time with his two sons. “I wish you all love and laughter, good thoughts, and happy days.”
