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 His 'Unconventional' Approach to Raising Son Wyatt with Ex Benjamin Maisani

Anderson Cooper is opening up about fatherhood!

Since welcoming son Wyatt in late April, the 53-year-old CNN anchor has been enjoying time with the newborn, who he is raising with best friend and ex-boyfriend Benjamin Maisani.

“There is no acrimony between us,” Anderson shared with People. “Even though it’s maybe unconventional because he’s my ex, he is my family.”

Despite no longer being together, Anderson went on to explain why he and Benjamin decided to co-parent Wyatt.

“I knew what it was like growing up without a dad,” Anderson shared, whose father Wyatt Emory Cooper died during heart surgery when he was 10. “If there was ever something that happened to me, I would want Wyatt to be surrounded by love.”

Anderson and Benjamin split back in March 2018 after almost 10 years together.

“While we were a couple, he wasn’t sure he wanted kids, which was one of the issues we’d always had,” Anderson admitted. “But when I decided, ‘I’m just going to do this,’ he started to be interested.”

“I don’t really have a family, and so my friends become my family. And this is somebody that I was involved with for 10 years, he’s a great guy,” he explained.

“We didn’t work out as a couple…but when I was a little kid, it was just my mom and my brother. But it was my mom and she was not the most parental person and I wish some adult, after my dad died, had stepped in,” he went on to say.

“So I thought, if something happens to me or even if something doesn’t happen to me, the more people love my son and are in his life, I’m all for that. My ex is a great guy and it’s good to have two parents, if you can.”

He also revealed he plans to have Wyatt call him “dad” or “daddy” and Benjamin “papa.” Plus, Benjamin, who is from France, will speak to him in French too!

He also revealed which famous gay dad reached out to him after hearing the news.
