Anderson Cooper is speaking about his interesting living arrangement.
While appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the CNN host spoke of raising his 9-month-old son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, with his ex, Benjamin Maisani… who still lives with him.
"We actually still live in the same house because we get along really well," Anderson said. "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 and Benjamin actually called it quits in 2018 after nine years together. But, when Anderson welcomed a son via a surrogate, he wanted Benjamin to co-parent.
"I don't really have a family and so my friends become my family. This is somebody I was involved with for 10 years," he told Howard Stern last year. "He's a great guy. We didn't work out as a couple… If more people love my son and are in his life, I'm all for that. My ex is a great guy and I think it's good to have two parents, if you can."
While chatting with Ellen this week, Anderson was quick to point out that there are no plans for a reconciliation.
"No. It's not going to happen," he maintained.
Asked if there are more kids on the horizon, the newman said, "there's nothing in the works."
"I don't know. Yes, I would love to. I think it would be great for him to have a sibling. I'm not sure I could handle another, but he's really such an easy kid," he said. "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."
