It’s the year of the American Idol baby! First, we heard former judge Simon Cowell is expecting a little boy with girlfriend Lauren Silverman and now Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson announces she and new hubby Brandon Blackstock are expecting. Ryan Seacrest, better make a run to Babies “R” Us for the upcoming showers.

We’re not the only ones excited by the upcoming crop of little Idol lovers. Simon couldn’t stop talking about Kelly’s good news and his own baby-to-be last night at the Jaguar F-Type Coupe live reveal party in Los Angeles. Fatherhood is already changing you for the better, Mr. Nasty.

Simon told InTouch he totally expects Simon, Jr. and Kelly the Second to be pals. Maybe they’ll even help out with the family business. “They’ll probably enter a competition show together,” he joked of his and Kelly’s little ones.

He might be kidding, but we could totally see this happening. If Simon’s son is half as good at music mogul-ing as his dad and if Kelly’s baby inherits her award-winning pipes, we could be in for one of the most dynamic duos ever to grace reality TV. (Sorry, Kimye.) 

As for the kind of mom Kelly will make, Simon has nothing but praise for the very first American Idol winner.

“She’ll be great,” he says. “I really like her. She’s a great girl.” We totally agree. Just think how great she’s going to be at singing lullabies.
