“He is healthy and happy, and even his occasional hiccups are to me adorable,” Cooper told viewers.

Process of adopting Wyatt
Maisani is in the process of adopting little Wyatt whose last name will be Maisani -Cooper.
“We are co-parents. Wyatt calls me Daddy, and Benjamin is Papa,” says Cooper.
“Wyatt helped us put together Sebastian’s crib and calls his little brother by his middle name, Luke,” Cooper said.
We’ll never forget the kindness
Cooper was grateful to their surrogate who helped usher baby Sebastian into the world.
“The sacrifices she and her family — her entire family — made and the love that they gave Sebastian this past year has been extraordinary,” Cooper said. “We’ll never forget the kindness.”
Finally had his son
In a related report, Anderson Cooper was very happy when he had his first son Wyatt because he never thought he could ever have one growing up as a gay kid.
"As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child," he said.
"I am grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son's birth."
