Anderson Cooper Reveals Ex Benjamin Maisani Is Still Living With Him As They Co-Parent His Son Wyatt

Anderson Cooper is opening up about co-parenting with his ex, Benjamin Maisani.

The 53-year-old newscaster spoke with Ellen DeGeneres about their living situation and why he wanted Benjamin to be part of son, Wyatt‘s life.

“We actually still live in the same house because we get along really well,” he shared. “It works out. It was interesting because he wasn’t really sure he wanted to have a kid, which was one of the reasons we probably broke up. But then he came around on the idea, and now he is just such a great parent.”

Anderson did shut down any speculation that he and Benjamin would reunite romantically, saying, “No. It’s not going to happen.”

However, he’s still weighing the options of giving Wyatt a sibling.

“I don’t know. Yes, I would love to. I think it would be great for him to have a sibling,” Anderson mused, but “I’m not sure I could handle another.”

Wyatt, he says, is “really such an easy kid. He’s still sleeping, like, 12 and a half hours every night, he eats his sweet peas and his mushed little cauliflower. He’s such a happy little chappy. It’s such a joy.”

Previously, Anderson revealed the reason why he wanted Benjamin to co-parent with him.

Anderson Cooper Talks About When He Accepted Being Gay

Anderson Cooper has been openly gay for years, but he’s now opening up about when he finally accepted to himself that he was gay.

The 53-year-old CNN anchor spoke to viewers during the Full Circle event that aired on Monday night (January 11).

Anderson said that he knew “something was up” when he was only seven-years-old.

“I mean, I was probably, I don’t know, 7, when I kind of realized — I’m not sure I knew the word ‘gay’ at the time, but I realized something was up. Something was different,” Anderson said (via People).

Anderson came out to some people while in high school, but it wasn’t until college that he fully embraced his sexuality.

“I think I really, truly accepted it — and not just accepted it, but fully embraced it and you know, came around to really loving the fact that I was gay — would probably be right after college,” he said. “You know, I kind of struggled in my teenage years, certainly, but even a little in college… a lot of the things I wanted to do at the time, you couldn’t be gay.”
