An inside source exclusively revealed the news to Us Weekly with the claim that the duo got back together “very quietly.”
[Anderson Cooper] also revealed that he recently found a list that his parents made 52 years ago when they were trying to find the best name for him.
The source also added that the Benjamin and Anderson were already making plans for their future as the former was “selling one of his clubs and cutting back on how much he does at night so he can spend more time at home with Anderson and the baby.”
Closer Weekly recounted that 52-year-old Anderson revealed back in March 2018 that he and his boyfriend of nine years were calling it quits.
The TV host stated that although he and Ben would not see each other in a romantic capacity, they would remain “family” because they are best of friends.
As regards the new child he just welcomed via surrogate, Closer Weekly reported that the journalist decided on the name “Wyatt” because it honored his father, who died when he was 10-years-old.
The silver-haired star also revealed that he recently found a list that his parents made 52 years ago when they were trying to find the best name for him.
The revelation shocked his fans as he has continued to keep his private life away from the public. In fact, during an interview with People about the end of his relationship with Benjamin, Anderson made sure that he didn’t share any intimate details.
He, however, informed the news outlet that being a “workaholic” had played a significant part in his eventual outcome of his relationship with Benjamin.
According to Anderson, the nature of his job as a TV personality required him to travel a lot without getting a lot of free time. Despite his air-tight schedule, Anderson and Benjamin made some time to go on vacations with some friends before their split.
