Simon Cowell has confirmed that he'll be a father for the first time.
After weeks of speculation, the X Factor mogul made his first public appearance at the première of One Direction's new film, This is Us where he confirmed his baby news.
Speaking to the BBC he said, "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."
He's expecting the baby with New York socialite, Lauren Silverman who recently settled her divorce with her estranged husband, Andrew.
Lauren, who's expected to give birth next February, has thought to have had an on/off affair with Simon while she was still married.
He continued, "Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. She [Lauren]'s a very special girl."
Meanwhile, David Walliams recently spoke about how he thinks that Simon will be a great dad.
Going by these X Factor quotes, being Simon Cowell's child could be a tough gig...
