Anderson Cooper, Boyfriend Plan to Adopt Haitian Baby: report
The deadly earthquake that devastated Haiti last month struck a chord in most people. Some opted to donate their time and/or money. Others offered their prayers and some, like this queen, want to adopt a few of its orphans.
As far as Haiti earthquake coverage went, no one was more visible than CNN's Anderson Cooper. Now, it's being reported that he and his boyfriend Ben Maisani (pictured) are planning to to adopt a child from that country.
"The death and destruction in Haiti made Anderson realize what's really important. He and Ben have decided to become dads," a National Enquirer source says. "Ben has been the best thing that's ever happened to Anderson. They both feel they're ready for the a baby."
The couple plans to name their new baby Carter -- in honor of Anderson's brother who committed suicide more than 20 years ago.
The couple also purchased (and is in the middle of renovating) a NYC firehouse where they plan to live.
Update: Anderson hates babies. He tweeted: "While the plight of children in Haiti has touched us all, and I continue to cover the situation there closely, stories about me adopting a baby are false. I am not adopting a child, Haitian or otherwise."
