Anderson Cooper snuggles with Sebastian!

Earlier this month, Anderson Cooper welcomed his second baby boy, Sebastian Luke, and took no shame in gushing over how happy he is! On Friday, Cooper appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan and opened up about how he's enjoying paternity leave.

Anderson Cooper attends the 12th Annual CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute at American Museum of Natural History.

Cooper told the hosts, "It's great to be able to come home and decompress," saying that there was "nothing better" than spending time at home with his two boys.

He noted that while it's not a vacation, time with his family is very important. He's spent a few weeks off already, and wouldn't change it for the world!

"Obviously my kids are asleep but I've taken the last couple of weeks off," he said.

"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," he added.

Cooper also explained the change in routine, and how he's grateful to be able to spend so much time with his oldest son as well since he's usually busy with work in the evenings.

"Every night to be able to feed Wyatt and give him his milk, he falls asleep on my chest and there's nothing better," he said."I'm usually on the air at nighttime. I miss all the bedtimes. So weekends I can do it, but to be able to do it for three weeks in a row, it's just the greatest. Nothing better."

Cooper also revealed that Wyatt and Sebastian are being raised with his "best friend and former partner" Benjamin Maisani. 

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

Congratulations to the beautiful family!
