Fait Diver: Daddy Issues

Still crowing over its John Edwards scoop The National Enquirer has done it again! Daring to venture where no “Mainstream” media outlet dare to tread they’ve got the latest on The Silver Fox !

“Hard-charging CNN anchorman Anderson Cooper was so moved by the suffering from the earthquake in Haiti, he’s decided to adopt a Haitian orphan, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

The silver-haired journalist and his hunky boyfriend, Ben Maisani, plan to raise the child together in their recently purchased home, a former firehouse they’re renovating in New York’s West Village, pals say.”

Do Tell Michelle! Here’s the happy couple — soon to be a trio.


“The death and destruction in Haiti made Anderson realize what’s really important. He and Ben have decided to become dads,” a longtime friend told The ENQUIRER.

“Ben has been the best thing that’s ever happened to Anderson. They both feel they’re ready for a baby.”

Well Ben certainly looks ready.


Anderson, 42, flew to the devastated country shortly after the quake struck on Jan. 12.

Meanwhile, back in New York, 37-year-old club owner Ben has been overseeing renovations on the historic firehouse Anderson recently bought, the friend said.
And Anderson has been so affected by the devastation in Haiti that he’s begun arrangements to adopt one of the country’s orphans.

Although fatherhood may curtail some of Anderson’s globe-trotting, he’s not planning to give up his work anytime soon.

“It just means once they get their son, he won’t jump on a plane for every story,” said the friend.

“Plus Ben is totally capable of keeping things under control when Anderson is away.”

Hey, that’s what boyfriends are for. Especially this one.


But won’t the kid be confused when Coop calls Ben “Daddy”?
Sing us out Norma Jean!


The de rigeur denial:

“From ac: while the plight of children in Haiti has touched us all, stories about me adopting a baby are completely false.”

Hey, he’s a busy man. After all, who knows where he’ll be this time tomorrow ?
