Andy Cohen revealed he is having a baby through surrogacy.

The openly gay US chat show host and former Attitude cover star was hosting the final Watch What Happens Live this year and he decided to share the good news which was met with crowds of applause and cheers.

He said: “I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life. I overshare and I expect everyone around me to do the same and tonight I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, 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 I’ve wanted in my heart for my entire life and while it has taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision will be my most rewarding chapter yet.

Although he decided to keep the gender of his soon-to-be-born child a secret, he explained why he wanted to share the news on his chat show.

“To the viewers at home, I call you my friends at home because we are friends,” he continued.

“You have supported me through almost 10 years night after night. This had been an incredible, joyous journey with you all.

“I am grateful to live my dream every day and grateful to you for coming along for the ride. I don’t take any of it for granted.”
