Anderson Cooper is opening up about his first weekend as a dad to his newborn son, Wyatt Morgan Cooper, who was born on April 27.
“It was great. It was awesome,” Anderson told Chris Cuomo on CNN on Monday night (May 4). “I spent the whole weekend just looking at him and burping him and feeding him. It was great.”
He added that when his son was laying on his chest it was “like this amphibious tree frog lying on my chest.”
“You’ve got a new baby, it’s a new you and I love watching you laugh and smile,” Chris shared. “There will be nothing else like it in your life.”
“I just stare at him. Hours will go by and I realize I’ve just been sitting there, holding him,” Anderson said earlier in the day on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “After a baby’s born, you do this thing called skin to skin where you hold the baby on your chest. I still do that all the time. There’s nothing better.”
He added, “I just can’t help but stare at him. And every now and then, you know, baby’s sleep a lot. But then he’ll suddenly open up his eyes and look at you. I don’t even know if he can see me at this stage, but it seems like it and he’s sort of understanding sounds.”
