Simon Cowell is the judge everyone loves to hate. From American Idol fame, he has quickly taken up popular residence on X Factor, the newest pop talent competition. Cowell also seems to have gotten himself into quite predicament as of late with his friend's wife. New York socialite Lauren Silverman, 36 is expecting a child and Cowell is reportedly the father - although she was married to someone else. Earlier in the month this report was not confirmed. Now according to BBC.com, Simon Cowell told them "I'm proud to be a dad."
Continuing to state,
"It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it. Things are changing in my life right now, for the better."
That sounds like confirmation the rumors are true. Cowell walked the red carpet ahead of the London premiere of One Direction's documentary 'This Is Us' and spoke of his future role.
While the details of the pregnancy are still quiet, Silverman and her husband have divorced quietly out of court. Whether Cowell played a major role in this separation is unknown. However in less than nine months, the world will know. It is hard to believe that Cowell will not proudly represent himself as the child's father to the world.
There has been no report that the couple will marry.
