Previously chatting on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live via video call, Daniel confirmed that he had spoken to Rupert over text regarding the happy news. He said: "I texted him the other day and said I was so happy for him and it's very very cool. It's also like super weird, for me, to think that we are all at the age where we are all having children, but we definitely are."
