In surprising news, it is being reported this morning that the X Factors judge Simon Cowell is going to be a daddy. Even more surprising is the mother of his baby is a married women, socialite Lauren Silverman. Simon has always maintained that he did not want children so I wonder what or who changed his mind. He once said in an interview, “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts.”
Although the lady in question is married they are in the process of getting a divorce.
People magazine reached out to Simon’s rep to try and get a confirmation on the story and they came back with, “This is a very sensitive issue and all media enquiries are being dealt with by his U.S. attorney.” In other words they are not saying.
In mid 2012 Simon gave another interview and he seemed to have changed a tune a bit saying that although he liked children, he probably missed the boat being 52. Simon was devoting all his time to his work and did not really have time to devote to a child.
It looks like that has all changed, congrats to Simon! What do you think of Simon becoming a new daddy? Hit the comments and let us know!
