David Walliams has spoken out about his friendship with Simon Cowell, supporting him in his upcoming fatherhood.
He told The Mirror, "Simon has lots of experience with kids. He spends a lot of time visiting children's hospices. He's great with them and will absolutely love being a dad."
"I'm guessing people don't know much about that. It's not something he does to look good. He wouldn't tell you about it himself."
He also revealed that he was one of the first to know about fellow Britain's Got Talent Judge's secret baby bombshell.
He said, "I had this incredible information but it was a private thing. I was good at keeping it a secret."
When news broke of Simon's baby drama, the comedian was quick to post a cheeky tweet saying, "@SimonCowell is doing a baby with a lady". He also added, "For the record @SimonCowell and I tried to have a baby together for many years. But I just couldn't get pregnant."
He added that he had met Simon's baby mama, Lauren Silverman a few times saying, "She's lovely, I'm thrilled for them both."
Simon and Lauren are expected to welcome their baby in February 2014.
