CNN’s Anderson Cooper welcomes new baby

Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper and ex Benjamin Maisani are taking legal steps to make their family official — despite not being a couple.

While announcing the birth of their second son, Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper, the CNN host also revealed that Maisani will adopt their firstborn, Wyatt.

“Wyatt calls me ‘Daddy’ and Benjamin ‘Papa.’ We’re a family,” Cooper, 54, shared on his show Thursday. “Benjamin is also in the process of adopting Wyatt, so Wyatt’s last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper as well.”

Prior to the official adoption process, Cooper and his former partner, 49, simply had been co-parenting.

“He’s doing great, and he’s just so adorable, and he’s got a lot more hair than Wyatt had when he was born, and he’s just incredible,” the journalist added of Sebastian, noting that 21-month-old Wyatt is “thrilled” to be a big brother.

Cooper then signed off his broadcast early to be with his kids.
