    Modus operandi (often used in the abbreviated forms M.O. or simply Method) is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as "method of operating". The plural is modi operandi ("methods of operating"). The term is used in English to describe someone's habits or manner of working, the method of operating or functioning. It is often used in a criminal sense, to profile the methods employed by individuals during the execution of a crime, and may also be used in offender profiling,where it can also be used to find clues to the perpetrator's psychology. It largely consists of the methods used to execute the crime, prevent detection, and facilitate escape.

    Just a guess and a reference for you. Grace sees that Cooper gets along with her twin in a nutaral way. She can tell that he seems in fond with kids from the way he treats her twin. The idea of fathering will eventually come to his mind.

    So, the sentence is saying that Cooper will become a father in the future.
