Report: Simon Cowell to Become First-Time Dad

New reports surfaced Wednesday saying that Simon Cowell is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman.

Silverman, 36, is the estranged wife of Cowell’s close friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. The Silvermans have reportedly been separated for a year, and a source told People.com they have filed for divorce.

The 53-year-old “X Factor” judge once joked with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour about having children, “I'm thinking about getting a pet… a squirrel.”
Cowell has yet to confirm the pregnancy news.
Cowell was engaged to “American Idol” makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy, but the couple broke off their 18-month engagement in September 2011. He also dated Carmen Electra from December 2012 to February 2013.
