The eggs will have a chance of having the Hidden Ability.

As of X and Y, if you breed a female with a hidden ability the eggs have around a 80% chance of having the hidden ability.

With a male you have to breed it with Ditto only if you want the eggs to have a chance of having the hidden ability. Breeding it with anything else will not give you the hidden ability, even a female of the same species.

If a female Pokémon has a Hidden Ability and is bred, it has a 60% chance of giving that Ability to each of its children. Each of the other Abilities has a 20% chance of being passed down. In Generation V, Hidden Abilities cannot be passed down from male or genderless Pokémon, or when breeding with Ditto. In Generation VI, this was changed so that male and genderless Pokémon have the chance to pass down their Hidden Ability only when bred with Ditto.
