Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman recently got to see an ultrasound scan of their first child together. It’s the emotional moment where dads start to think, “Wow, this is happening!”
“You literally see this thing which is now alive and moving around,” Simon told The Times of London. “I feel very paternal right now. So I’m very happy.”
His comments were so un-Simon — i.e. genuine, not sarcastic — that I’m starting to think this whole becoming-a-father thing has completely altered his personality. Will he be able to return to the X-Factor as biting as before?
Simon told the BBC, “Things are changing in my life right now for the better.” And the same guy who once said he could not imagine having kids is resetting his thinking on the subject.
When he visited ITV’s Daybreak to talk about I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical, a parody production he’s behind that will open on London’s West End this spring, he even suggested that the baby will be at the premiere!
“I’ve timed it,” joked Simon. No details have been announced re: Lauren’s due date, but I think Simon just let the world know that Baby Cowell will be coming in March.
