“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, 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,” said Cohen on the December 20 episode of WWHL.

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

“And though it’s taken me longer than most to get there, I cannot wait for what I envision to be the most rewarding chapter yet.”

Cohen hosted a star-studded baby shower in January featuring cast members from the various Real Housewives series, which he executive produces for Bravo.

Singer John Mayer also attended.
