Simon Cowell, a 53-year-old music mogul and notoriously harsh TV personality, is reported to be expecting his first child—with a married New York socialite.
Cowell's baby mama, Lauren Silverman, isn't just married—she's the estranged wife of Cowell's longtime friend, real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman.
US Weekly is reporting that Silverman is 10 weeks along and has plans to divorce her husband to be with the baby's father.
Cowell has been rumored as the love-em-and-leave-em type, but hasn't had his love life in the public eye since he ended his 18-month engagement to American Idol makeup artist Mezhgan Husseiny.
The X Factor judge has expressed mixed feelings about being a father in the past.
"God no. I couldn't have children," Cowell said in 2009. "If I had them here drawing on the walls, I'd go nuts."
He changed his tune in 2012 when he told AOL Music he actually really likes kids.
"The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids and I've always devoted all my life to work," he explained. "And at 52, I've probably missed the opportunity."
It appears the star spoke too soon. We're sure Simon will be a great father; but we sure hope the kid can sing, or at least handle a little constructive criticism.
