Cohen kept the reveal until the end of the final live show of the season. He primed his news by saying, “I have always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life. I overshare, and I expect everyone around me to do the same.”

Many fans worried that Cohen was about to announce he was leaving the show, but instead he said, “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.
“Family means everything to me,” Cohen added. “Having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life.”
