TV mogul, Simon Cowell is reportedly having a baby boy and he is over the moon about it.
"He is over the moon to be having a son," a source stated. "I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal. You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now," he told the Times of the U.K. Cowell was in London for the Labour Day weekend.
"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. Then once I got used to the idea that I was going to be a dad, then I was really happy," Cowell recently confessed to Magic FM.
Lauren, who is believed to be around 12 weeks pregnant, was divorced by her husband, real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman, who named 53-year-old Cowell in his at-fault divorce filing. She is already mother to one child -- seven-year-old Adam Silverman.
Meanwhile, Cowell, 53, was all praise for Lauren and her baby, he calls it a miracle. "Once it's happened [becoming a father], you feel completely different. Once I heard the news about the baby - little bit of a shock, then I got used to it. Then I became incredibly paternal and protective and I feel very attached to the baby already. The fact that it can happen at this time of my life is fantastic, maybe a miracle," Cowell stressed.
He has also reportedly opened an account with the high end baby boutique in Los Angeles, Petit Tresor for his son. Apparently one of Cowell's assistants called the store to request brochures which offers £965 cradle and crib, a £9,580 wardrobe, a £4,569 dresser and a £1,385 bed. They also left the number of his black American express credit card there.
