Andy Cohen arrives at Lincoln Center's American Songbook Gala Honors Lorne Michaels at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 11, 2016 in New York City. 

It was Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen instead of one of his reality show guests who dished up a surprise for his audience. The 50-year-old announced on his last show of the year on Thursday (Dec. 20) that he’s going to be a father.

Cohen said it happened “after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science.” He said a “wonderful surrogate” is carrying his future and the baby is due in about six weeks.

Cohen is the executive producer of reality series such as Real Housewives and will co-host CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper.
