Anderson Cooper is loving fatherhood, clearly.
Cooper, 53, celebrated National Read Across America Day by sharing a selfie video of him and Wyatt, his 10-month-old son, reading a children’s story.

“Today is National Read Across America Day. Especially now with millions of kids still not in school because of the pandemic, inspiring them to read is more important than ever,” Cooper shared. “I struggled to read when I was a child with a mild form of dyslexia. Luckily it got noticed early and I was able to get help with it. But for a lot of kids that is not the case.
“My son Wyatt is 10 months old. I try to read to him every day. Today’s selection was If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” he explained before cutting to footage of the adorable father-son moment. “Is there anything better than just hanging out with your kid and reading?”
Cooper and his ex-boyfriend Benjamin Maisani welcomed Wyatt Morgan via a surrogate on April 27.
