Reality television star, Simon Cowell is expecting a baby boy with friend’s wife, Lauren Silverman.
According to a US Weekly source, Cowell and Lauren have known for sometime that they are expecting a baby boy. “They’ve known for a while!” the source said.
On Sept. 3, the first-time dad-to-be got a glimpse of his son via a recent sonogram to which he said, “You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around,” he said. “I feel very paternal right now. So I am very happy,” he said.
“I can assure you: I won’t go soft,” the X-factor judge added assuredly.
Cowell started dating Lauren when she was still married to Cowell’s friend, Andrew Silverman. After their affair became public and the fact that they were expecting their first child together, Andrew and Lauren reached a divorce settlement. Lauren and Andrew have a son, 7-year-old Adam.
“I am good with kids because I like kids,” he told the BBC. “I really do like them and I listen to them. Once I got used to [the idea of becoming a father] I did get excited. I think I will be a good dad!”
