Simon Cowell to Become a Father: Expecting Baby With Socialite Lauren Silverman

Music mogul and  man-behind-the- X Factor Simon Cowell is said to be having a baby with New York socialite Lauren Silverman according to The Daily Mail today. 
Cowell was previously friends with Silverman and her husband Andrew (that's right, she's still married) until their marriage broke down just over a year ago and friendship blossomed into romance. 
Silverman, 36, is said to be around ten weeks pregnant, and has been reportedly said she wishes to marry Cowell and it will be the socialite's second child after her first during her marriage. The pair have holidayed together a few times, with Lauren being around Cowell a lot in recent years, despite the fact that he was engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy. 
Usmagazine reported "Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while. As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."
Back in 2009, he was asked about children, where he said:

"God, no. I couldn't have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I'd go nuts. "
 

Simon Cowell, 53, has made no intimations about having children, and steered away from the topic whilst doing an interview for Chelsea Handler on Tuesday, instead talking about the success of his manufactured band One Direction.
