Anderson Cooper and Benjamin Maisani may not be together anymore, but that doesn't mean they aren't in each other's lives. In fact, Maisani is going to serve as a co-parent to Cooper's newborn son, Wyatt

During his virtual Late Show With Stephen Colbert appearance on Monday, the 52-year-old CNN host revealed that Maisani is "going to be a co-parent to Wyatt even though we're not together anymore." 

"He's my family, and I want him to be Wyatt's family as well," Cooper revealed. 

In fact, Maisani was in the delivery room with Cooper and their surrogate when Wyatt was born. 

Despite some reports this week, a source told ET that Cooper is not back together with 47-year-old Maisani. The men split in March 2018 after going public with their relationship in 2015. 

At the time of the breakup news, Cooper told ET in a statement, "Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much."

On Monday, Cooper, who has already publicly shared some sweet dad moments, couldn't help but gush about fatherhood.

"It's extraordinary. It's astonishing. I just stare at him and hold him. ...I just can't believe that A) he's going to depend on me and that he belongs to me, that he's here," he said. "I've always dreamed about it, but I never thought I would actually be able to do it. It's just incredible."
