Why Anderson Cooper Wishes He Had Become a Dad Sooner

In a recent interview, Anderson Cooper confessed that he was loving being a father. The CNN anchor lamented about not taking the role of fatherhood sooner now that he has a child.

Last Friday, Anderson Cooper, 53, was interviewed on Radio Andy’s SiriusXM's “Quarantined with Bruce” show. During the segment, the journalist opened up to host Bruce Bozzi about being a father.

On April 27, 2020, the CNN anchor welcomed baby Wyatt Morgan via surrogate making him a father for the first time. The star is co-parenting the little boy with his ex-boyfriend Benjamin Maisani, 47.

Cooper confessed to Bozzi that he wouldn’t have become a parent if he hadn’t felt he was ready for the role. He shared that he felt being a father was exactly what he should be doing now, adding:

“I wish I had done it sooner."

Letting the host into his personal space a bit, the journalist revealed how he was able to spend his time with little Wyatt. He shared that the bonding sessions have been “amazing” amid the outbreak of COVID-19.

Cooper revealed that he’d never been a morning person before his son came into his life. However, he now jumped out of bed at seven in the morning without an alarm waking him up.

The “Anderson Cooper 360°” host said he woke early so he could be there for Wyatt when he woke up at 8:45 a.m. He admitted that his life has since changed when he welcomed his son, noting:

"I just love every aspect of it. It's truly the greatest thing ever.”

Cooper even questioned what he’d been doing with his life before Wyatt was a part of it. Three days after his son was born the television personality surprised everyone when he announced the news on his show.

This year Anderson Cooper’s dream finally came true and he’s never been happier.

He confessed, at the time, that when he was 12 he’d thought he’d never become a parent because he was gay. However, this year his dream finally came true and he’s never been happier.

In November 2020, Cooper’s bundle of joy was named “People” magazine's “Cutest Baby Alive.” The year before, the little boy’s playmate, Benjamin Allen Cohen (Andy Cohen’s son) held the title.
