Anderson Cooper on Dealing with Past Loss and Finding ‘Bliss’ with Sons Wyatt and Sebastian (Exclusive)

“This is the best time of my life,” the CNN host tells PEOPLE. “There’s no doubt about it.”

Cooper, who lives with Maisani and the boys in New York as well as their home in Connecticut, says he loves the “routine” of their New England home.

“We have a diner that we go to every morning – they really like the people who run the diner. And they love to swim. I love getting them ready for their afternoon nap and sitting with them and reading and then letting them fall asleep in my arms. There is nothing better,” he explains.

Cooper adds that co-parenting with Maisani, with whom the journalist was in a relationship for several years until 2018, was “very natural”. After they broke up, the two remained friends and decided to raise the boys together after Cooper welcomed them via surrogate.

“I work nights, so he’s there at night. And we both wake up right before they do, bring them milk and spend the first few hours of the day just with them,” explains Cooper. “And Benjamin speaks French to them. I have no idea what they are saying. I think they are plotting against me.”

Cooper, who previously went viral for his distinct giggles, says that while his boys haven’t inherited his laugh, they have their own special laugh.

“The children giggle deliciously, but not as much as my mom and I used to,” says the 56-year-old journalist in the new issue of PEOPLE.

Despite not inheriting his giggles, Cooper says he passed on something else to his boys — his old toys.

“Just to see their relationship, it’s amazing,” he says. “Recently I found wooden blocks that my brother and I used to play with. We drew robots and the like on them. And now it’s crazy to see Wyatt playing with them and building things.”

“It’s beautiful to see this cycle of life and love and how all these things repeat themselves,” Cooper continues.
