In April 2020, Cooper’s life was transformed with the arrival of his first son, Wyatt Morgan. Named after Cooper’s late father and carrying a family name from his mother Gloria Vanderbilt’s side, Wyatt’s birth marked a new chapter in Cooper’s life.

Cooper humorously admitted on Ellen DeGeneres’ show that despite acquiring numerous parenting books, he never read them, learning that owning books isn’t quite the same as reading them.

Parenting, as Cooper discovered, came with its uncertainties, but he embraced it wholeheartedly, enjoying “everything” about the experience. His journey was supported by his ex-partner, Benjamin Maisani, who co-parents with him.

The family recently grew with the addition of Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper. Announced on his show, “Anderson Cooper 360,” Cooper joyfully shared details about Sebastian’s birth and his adorable quirks. Maisani is in the process of adopting Wyatt, further solidifying their family bond.
