Andy Cohen is going to be a father! The Watch What Happens Live host announced the news during his last show of the year.
Here is how the announcement went down:
Tonight I want to share a little personal news of my own. To the viewers at home, I call you my friends at home because we are friends. You have supported me through almost 10 years of Live. This has been an incredible joyous journey with you all. I am grateful to be able to live my dream every day and grateful to you for coming along for the ride.
And throughout it, I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life — I overshare and expect everyone to do the same.
Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science — if all goes according to plan in about six weeks time I’m going to become a father.
Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future.
Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life. Though it’s taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be the most rewarding chapter yet.
“So happy holidays and happy New Year to all of you. I’m going to see you on New Year’s Eve on CNN. Here’s to 2019. Thanks, everybody.”
The Internet had reactions to the news.

I SWEAR I almost had a HEART ATTACK. I thought @Andy was leaving us, and instead he’s about to join this insane troupe of parents! I know he’ll probably never see this, but I feel I know him after the hours I’ve watched him, so congrats on the news of your child! @BravoWWHL
