Simon Cowell attended a photocall to launch I Can’t Sing – The X Factor Musical in London, England on Monday (September 2). The 53-year-old is expecting a boy with Lauren Silverman.
“He is over the moon to be having a son,” a source told the Daily News’ Confidenti@l blog. Another soure told Us Weekly “they’ve known for a while!”
During the press conference the music mogul described seeing their first sonogram.
He said, “You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now. So I am very happy.”
In another interview with the BBC – Cowell said he’s actually a natural with little ones.
“I am good with kids because I like kids. I really do like them and I listen to them. Once I got used to [becoming a father] I did get excited. I think I will be a good dad!”
However don’t ask him to change diapers.
“I’m not doing that, 100% absolutely not going near that!” he told BBC. Of sleep deprivation? “Can’t I just get a nanny?”
The X Factor judge and Silverman were recently on vacation on the French Riviera.
“They love that they don’t have to hide anything anymore,” a source told US.
While Cowell is in L.A. getting ready to promote The X Factor – Lauren is back in New York City with her 7-year-old son Adam. According to Confidenti@l she is planning to move into a new apartment before the end of the week on the upper East Side.
Their new arrival is expected to make a debut in February.
