According to Cooper, the little boy weighed 6.8 pounds at birth and was born via surrogate.
“He is healthy and happy, and even his occasional hiccups are to me adorable. He mostly just sleeps and eats, and he certainly poops, but he already seems like a wise and thoughtful little chap,” Cooper told his viewers.

Cooper disclosed that just like their first son Wyatt, Sebastian will be raised by both Cooper and his best friend and former partner Benjamin Maisani.
“We are co-parents. Wyatt calls me Daddy, and Benjamin is Papa,” Cooper added.
Cooper also revealed that his ex-partner Maisani is in the process of adopting Wyatt and noted that Wyatt’s last name will be changed to Maisani-Cooper.
He also revealed that his firstborn son has been really helpful in setting up his little brother’s crib.
“Wyatt helped us put together Sebastian’s crib and calls his little brother by his middle name, Luke. Sebastian is a mouthful for a 22-month-old,” added Cooper.

“I want to share with you some joyful news. On Monday, I became a father. This is Wyatt Cooper. He is three days old. He is named after my father, who died when I was ten. I hope I can be as good a dad as he was. My son’s middle name is Morgan. It’s a family name on my mom’s side. I know my mom and dad liked the name morgan because I recently found a list they made 52 years ago when they were trying to think of names for me. Wyatt Morgan Cooper. My son. He was 7.2 lbs at birth, and he is sweet, and soft, and healthy and I am beyond happy,” shared Cooper.
