Andy Cohen is about to add fatherhood to his long list of responsibilities and his child is due in just six weeks.

During the Thursday episode (December 20) of his late-night Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live, the 50-year-old star made the big announcement along the likes of Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, and Teresa Giudice. 

"I am full of so much gratitude," Cohen said during the last broadcast of the year. "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."

Cohen continued on by emphasizing that he's always tried to be as transparent as possible able his life. "I overshare and expect everyone to do the same," he told viewers. "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 β€” 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."

No word on the sex of the child or whether or not he plans on being a single parent. He previously split from his partner Clifton Dassuncao. Scroll on below to watch the big announcement!
