Anderson Cooper loves keeping in touch with his little boy while he is away at work.
The journalist, 54, appeared in Monday night’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers where he chatted about his 18-month-old son Wyatt Morgan and the adorable way he answers his father’s FaceTime calls.
Cooper, who shares his son with ex-girlfriend Benjamin Maisani, says he is “obsessed with limiting screen time” for his son, but it gets difficult as he likes to call him “between commercial breaks to check how he’s doing. “
“He’s not allowed to like watching a screen – we’re trying to avoid it – but he’s grabbing the screen now while I’m FaceTiming with Benjamin, my former partner, and he wants to run with it like a crazy albino monkey, says Cooper with a laugh.

“It’s the biggest thing ever. I love it because it’s like his view of the world,” he adds, imitating his son running around the house while holding the phone.
Earlier this month, Cooper revealed his son’s latest obsession while appearing in an episode of Ellen DeGeneres Show.
The CNN anchor said his son has a fascination with feet, though the newlywed father does not fully understand the interest.
“He’s so cute. He’s just delicious. He’s so happy,” Cooper said of his young son when a picture of Wyatt appeared behind him.
DeGeneres then showed the audience an adorable picture of Wyatt with his fathers Cooper and Maisani, with their son fluttering his bare feet in front of the camera.
“And Wyatt always shows his feet off. I’m not sure why, but there he is,” Cooper said.
Later in the interview, the journalist shared that Wyatt “starts talking a little,” adding that “one of his first words was ‘shoes’, which I love.”
“He is in the feet, “DeGeneres added.
“Yes, you’re right – exactly! I did not connect there,” Cooper replied with a laugh.
