Simon Cowell has recorded an interview with Ellen Degeneres where he discusses Lauren Silverman's pregnancy in detail and shares his thoughts on the gold-digger rumours.
Set to air in America on Tuesday, Ellen probes the X Factor boss about how the whole situation came about, and how he feels about impending fatherhood.
"It was kind of uncomfortable, you know, the situation," Simon said, referring to the fact that until recently, Lauren was actually the wife of his best friend.
"But these things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I'm happy. I'm actually happier than I've ever been."
But when asked about Lauren's portrayal in the media, Si was quick to jump to her defence, saying, "I obviously can't blame the media - it was kind of what I call a juicy story.
"But there was a lot of stuff that was said about her: that she trapped me and that she's a gold-digger.
"It's absolute nonsense. She's a great girl but, like I said, it was awkward because of the circumstances."
Sounds like a whole new Simon, right?
The music mogul even got excited when Ellen presented him with mini-me versions of his favourite white t-shirt and jeans.
Who is this person Ellen and what have you done with the real Simon Cowell?!
