And despite his son sleeping through the night, the Anderson Cooper 360° host has become a fan of a beverage many busy parents feel at times that they can't live without: coffee.
"As soon as I've seen my son wake up and I feed him, I usually wait until he goes back to sleep. He wakes up around 8:15 and by 10 he's ready for another little nap. As soon as he goes down, I run and get an iced coffee and I cannot tell you the degree to which I look forward to that," Cooper says.
"I never really drank coffee until my son. It's amazing," he adds. "I now understand coffee, although I do think it's basically just a narcotic. And we've all just accepted that, 'Oh yeah, coffee's not a drug, it's just a drink.' No, it's not, it's a drug. But everyone seems to think it's okay, it's legal."

Because I'm focused on [Wyatt], it gives an order to everything."
