Anderson Cooper has welcomed another child, Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper.

The longtime TV personality announced the wonderful news on his CNN show Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday.

Knowing how great of a man he is, and more importantly, how much he loves being a father makes us thrilled that he has gotten to welcome another child. We could not be happier for Anderson Cooper and his family.

Anderson Cooper has welcomed another child, Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper, two years after the birth of his son Wyatt.

"I wanted to start out with some good news, which also happens to be very personal news," Cooper said.

"These are the pictures I showed of Wyatt then, taken just days after he was born."

"This is Wyatt today. He is nearly 22 months old. He is sweet, funny, and the greatest joy of my life."

"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 continued.

Needless to say, my poor heart is growing so big for this family that just got bigger.

"This is Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper."

"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."

He gave thanks to everyone at the hospital who helped bring his son safely into the world, and also thanked Sebastian's surrogate.

He thanked her for all the sacrifices that she and her family made so that he could become a father for the second time.

Anderson Cooper will also be taking the next few weeks off so he can focus on his sons.

"I wish you all love and laughter, good thoughts, and happy days." he said.

"I'm definitely calmer than I was the first time."

"He's doing great and he's just so adorable, he's got a lot more hair than Wyatt had when he was born, and he's just incredible."

"Wyatt is thrilled,"

We are so happy for Cooper and his family! What a special time this is for everyone!
