While signing off on his CNN show, Anderson Cooper 360, on Monday, the new dad was joined by Chris Cuomo at the start of the new Cuomo Prime Time, and though their chat was brief, it's clear how special being a parent is for both TV journalists.
Cuomo -- who appeared to be back in his studio for the broadcast instead of in his basement, where he's been hosting the show amid his lengthy COVID-19 battle -- asked Cooper how his "first weekend" with the new baby was, after Cooper welcomed Wyatt via surrogate last week.
"It was great. It was awesome," Cooper said, breaking into a huge smile. "I spent the whole weekend just looking at him and burping him and feeding him. It was great."
Reflecting on having his newborn son laying on him as he slept and ate, Cooper joked, "It's like this amphibious tree frog lying on my chest."
"You will come up with better metaphors for what your son reminds you of than an amphibious tree frog, but you're new to this," Cuomo responded with a laugh.
Cuomo -- who shares three children, Bella, 17, Mario, 14, and Carolina, 11, with wife Cristina -- couldn't get enough of Cooper's gleeful joy.
"You've got a new baby, it's a new you and I love watching you laugh and smile," Cuomo shared. "There will be nothing else like it in your life."
