Simon Cowell and his baby mama Lauren Silverman have just found out the gender of their baby.
According to reports, the X-Factor judge and his lady will be welcoming a son early next year. ”He is over the moon to be having a son,” a source revealed to the NY Daily News’ Confidenti@l.
Days prior, Simon, 53, gushed over seeing his baby for the first time at one of Lauren’s regular doctor visits. “I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal,” he told the Times of the U.K. “You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now. So I am very happy.”
Last month, Simon announced his baby news to BBC, saying, “I’m proud to be a dad. 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. She [Lauren]‘s a very special girl.”
While Simon and Lauren are very much in a relationship at this point, things started out a little rocky. After all, Lauren was married to Simon’s former friend. At this point, the pair has filed for divorce but the judge will likely not sign off on the split until October.
“It was a surprise initially and some of the circumstances around this were very uncomfortable to say the least, but it happened and she’s an incredible girl,” he recently admitted during a radio interview with Magic FM. “Then once I got used to the idea that I was going to be a dad, then I was really happy.”
