While it’s too soon to tell whether Simon Cowell’s baby with Lauren Silverman will have the X Factor, it sounds like we can confirm that it has the XY factor! The couple is reportedly expecting a boy, according to a New York Daily News source.
Due in February, this will be Simon’s first child and the second for Lauren, who has a child with her now ex-husband Andrew Silverman. The ink is still drying on their divorce papers, with a settlement reached not long after news broke that Lauren was expecting and that Simon was the father. (Awkward!)
Despite not seeming like the sort that would be good with kids, Simon is on record as being pleased about becoming a dad for the first time at 53. However, he’s not stoked on everything about fatherhood. When asked by BBC about whether he’d be changing any diapers, Simon responded, "I'm not doing that, 100% absolutely not going near that!" It sounds like he also won’t be dealing with any late night feedings. “Can’t I just get a nanny?”
Considering Simon’s worth around $370 million, we’re going to go out on a limb and say he can easily afford a night nurse.
