Last month we learned that Simon Cowell was going to be dad after having an affair with his close friend’s wife. Despite the fact that the The X Factor guru has repeatedly stated in the past that he didn’t want children, Cowell actually revealed recently that he is very excited now and looking forward to fatherhood!
Simon Cowell fans were shocked to learn that music mogul and X Factor guru, who has always claimed he did not want kids, was going to be a dad after sleeping with his friend’s wife, Lauren Silverman. But now, Cowell seems to have changed his tune about his future as a father. According to US Weekly, Cowell told Ellen DeGeneres that his initial reaction to the baby news was: “Oh my God, this is exciting, and this is going to be a bit of a nightmare for the next few weeks.”
But since the baby news has sunk in, Cowell is now looking forward to being a dad. “These things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I’m happy. I’m actually happier than I’ve ever been,” Cowell added. Since the baby news hit the web, there has been much speculation that Lauren Silverman tried to “trap” Cowell with a baby, but Simon insists that is nothing more than “rubbish,” as he gushed about Silverman.
