Anderson Cooper celebrated his son Wyatt Morgan second birthday in a birthday tribute to Instagram.
In a new family photo, Cooper can be seen along with his former partner Benjamin Maisani and their sons, Wyatt and Sebastian Luke, 9 weeks.
“Wyatt is two years old today! It is hard to believe. He is sweet and funny, kind and caring. Your Papa and brother and I love you sooooo much!” Cooper captioned the post.
Earlier this month, Cooper revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19 however, his kids remained negative.
His positive COVID diagnosis came two months after the Anderson Cooper 360 host announced that he welcomed Sebastian on his show in February, sharing a photo of Wyatt and saying, “If he looks particularly happy in this picture, it’s because he now has a baby brother.”
“His name is Sebastian, and I would like you to meet him,” Cooper said.
“He was 6.8 pounds at birth and he was healthy and happy and even his occasional hiccups, are to me, adorable. He mostly just sleeps and eats and certainly poops, but he already seems like a wise and thoughtful little chap.”
Cooper went on to reveal how both Wyatt and Sebastian are being raised by him and his “best friend and former partner,” Maisani.
“Wyatt calls me ‘Daddy’ and Benjamin ‘Papa,’ ” he said. “We’re a family. Benjamin is also in the process of adopting Wyatt, whose last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper as well.”
Cooper appeared on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan at the end of February and talked about how there’s “nothing better” than spending time with his two kids on paternity leave.
“It’s great to be able to come home and decompress,” he explained to co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.
“Obviously my kids are asleep but I’ve taken the last couple of weeks off, it’s the longest I’ve been off, almost three weeks. I’ve never taken three weeks off before and it’s just been so amazing.”
