Simon Cowell's mom: He'll be a great dad

Simon Cowell’s mom is confident that the music mogul will be a “fantastic” dad, following allegations he is expecting his first child with a New York socialite.

Simon Cowell’s mother says he will make a “fantastic” father.

The music mogul is reportedly expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman. Lauren is believed to be around ten weeks along and she is also allegedly still married to Simon’s pal Andrew Silverman.

Simon is yet to confirm or deny the speculation, but his mom Julie has spoken out about her son starting a family.

“It’s wonderful. He’ll make a fantastic father,” she is quoted as saying by British newspaper The Daily Mirror.

Lauren’s stepmother Rosy Davis has also addressed claims that the 36-year-old brunette is pregnant.

“We are all excited for the baby,” she is quoted as saying by British newspaper The Daily Mail. “Any kid is a blessing.”

Lauren and 53-year-old Simon have been spending increasing amounts of time together in recent months. They are believed to have started dating at the beginning of the year and she was a “constant presence” when Simon was in New York for X Factor US auditions recently. They were also spotted getting cosy on a yacht in the Caribbean in March.

New York Post reports that they approached Simon about his romance with Lauren in May, after sources claimed it was “pretty serious”. However, the reality show star’s team insisted the pair were just friends.

The publication claims Lauren’s husband Andrew filed for divorce on July 15.

Meanwhile, one of Simon’s ex-girlfriends seemingly alluded to the surprise pregnancy two days before the news broke. While Sinitta didn’t directly reference Simon in her Twitter message, she did suggest she’d had some shocking news.

“Something has just happened ..half miracle, half nightmare! #WakeMeUpIWantToGetOff!! (sic)” she wrote on her account on July 29.

Simon has remained close friends with Sinitta, as well as his other former partners Terri Seymour and Mezhgan Hussainy and they are apparently less than impressed with the prospect of Simon becoming a dad next February.

“Simon is in no doubt the child is his. The other girls can’t believe that she is the one who has [got his baby]. They’ve all met her, they know who she is and they have been reduced to tears by this,” a source told MailOnline. “She has apparently been going around telling people for the last three to six months that she is going to have his baby… In the harem hierarchy, Lauren is regarded as the fun, party girl. Simon is [said to be] freaked out by this but there is no question that he will not support the child.”
