With the capabilities of the European Unions Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory a protoplanetary disc 185 light years from Earth has been found to contain enough water to fill all of the Earth's Oceans thousands of times over.

This makes water far more abundant in initial planet formation than previously thought and water in our own Solar System has been found to be more abundant on some moons than here on Planet Earth.

In a way........since water is far more prevalent than previously thought it follows that many planets would contain enough water to support life.
