This just in: Andy Cohen‘s havin’ a baby!

The 50-year-old Watch What Happens Live! host announced yesterday that he’s expecting his first child via surrogate in 2019.

“I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life,” Andy said on his show last night. “I overshare and I expect everyone around me to do the same.”

He continued, “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 am going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future.”

Cohen went on to say that he’s always wanted children, and he’s thrilled it’s finally–finally!–happening.

“Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something I have wanted in my heart for my entire life,” he said. “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.”

Cohen followed up last night’s big announcement this morning by thanking everyone for their support.

Congrats to the dad-to-be!
