Earlier this month, Cooper revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19 but his kids remained negative.

His positive COVID diagnosis came two months after the Anderson Cooper 360 host announced that he welcomed Sebastian on his show in February, sharing a photo of Wyatt and saying, "If he looks particularly happy in this picture, it's because he now has a baby brother."

"His name is Sebastian, and I would like you to meet him," Cooper said. "He was 6.8 pounds at birth and he was healthy and happy and even his occasional hiccups, are to me, adorable. He mostly just sleeps and eats and certainly poops, but he already seems like a wise and thoughtful little chap."

Cooper revealed that both Wyatt and Sebastian are being raised by him and his "best friend and former partner," Maisani.

"Wyatt calls me 'Daddy' and Benjamin 'Papa,' " he said. "We're a family. Benjamin is also in the process of adopting Wyatt, whose last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper as well."

At the end of February, Cooper appeared on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan and discussed how there's "nothing better" than spending time with his two kids on paternity leave.

"It's great to be able to come home and decompress," he explained to co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. "Obviously my kids are asleep but I've taken the last couple of weeks off, it's the longest I've been off, almost three weeks. I've never taken three weeks off before and it's just been so amazing."
