Simon Cowell’s Probably Going to Be a Father

Whaaaaaaat? Stop the presses. The world is coming to a screeching halt because apparently the world’s most eligible bachelor (and the richest one), 53-year-old Simon Cowell, is expecting a baby with New York socialite Lauren Silverman. His camp hasn’t confirmed these reports yet, but even his 87-year-old mother is talking the the press about it, so I guess this is happening.

From The Sun:

“I’ve not heard anything officially. But if it’s true then I’m absolutely delighted.

“It’s wonderful! He’ll make a fantastic father. He’ll be great.”

Oh, dear. According to that article, Lauren Silverman is his good friend’s girl, so there’s a shocker. Simon is always really good with kids so in a way, I can kind of see him being a really great father, if this is true. In another way, I’m kinda freaked out. What’s the world coming to when Simon Cowell has a baby?

Here’s what comedian David Walliams and his ex-girlfriend Sinitta tweeted (of course) about the news. You probably won’t know who those people are unless you’re English, but just go with it:

  • How tragic. She ‘accidentally’ got knocked up. That makes my right eyebrow lift way up and quiver to utter those words. Gold digger. Hate to be so judgmental, but I’m a woman and I would never want to get pregnant by a confirmed serial bachelor who never, ever wanted any children in the first place.

  • Why is everyone talking about the fact he MAY soon be a father but ignoring the fact he slept with his FRIEND’S wife/gf?
