Anderson Cooper was seen out in New York City for the first time this week after welcoming his firstborn son Wyatt into the world.
The outing came as it emerged the 52-year-old CNN anchor quietly reunited with ex boyfriend Benjamin Maisani before his son's birth.
'Anderson has reconciled with Ben,' a source told Us Weekly.
'They very quietly got back together and are planning ahead. Ben is selling one of his clubs and cutting back on how much he does at night so he can spend more time at home with Anderson and the baby.'
