Anderson Cooper Not only does she share fatherhood with her ex-boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, but they still live together.
The CNN host made an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show where he shared what it’s like to be a new dad to his son Wyatt, and how he’s balancing daddy duties with his ex.
“We actually still live in the same house because we get along so well,” Cooper revealed. “It’s weird, but it works.”
Cooper told DeGeneres that initially, Maisani was not so sure of having a child.
“It was interesting, because I wasn’t sure I wanted to have a child, which is one of the reasons we probably broke up,” Cooper admitted. “He got the idea and now he’s a great dad.”
In fact, becoming a father has made Maisani a “big softie”. All this time together does not necessarily mean a reconciliation for the couple in the future. When asked if they would get back together, Cooper answered with a firm “No.”
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a no to baby number 2.
“Do you think you want Wyatt to have a brother? Are you going to have another baby?” Ellen asked.
“I don’t know. There is nothing in the works,” Cooper said. “Yes, I would love to, I think it would be great for him to have a brother. I’m not sure I can handle another, but he’s a really easy kid.”
For now, the journalist is simply enjoying all the happy moments of the new baby.
“He still sleeps about 12 1/2 hours every night. He eats his sweet peas and mashed cauliflower. He’s just a happy little chappy, and he’s a joy,” Cooper said.
