What does Anderson think about fatherhood?

Anderson’s fellow CNN host, Jake Tapper, asked him about plans to have kids in an interview a few years back.

Anderson said he did think about it. He enjoys kids’ company and loves playing with his nephews and nieces, but he said he had doubts whether he could do it, as he was consumed by work at the moment.
