Simon Cowell to be a dad

He’s famous for his bachelor lifestyle, but The X Factor judge, Simon Cowell is going to be a dad. The music mogul (53) is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman (36), but the happy news has been overshadowed by controversy as Lauren is married to Simon Cowell’s close friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman.

Simon is yet to officially comment, but the Silvermans have filed for divorce, a source tells People magazine.

In an interview in 2009, Simon said he would never wish to be a father.

“God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts,” he said. “You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.”
