Simon Cowell: Proud to Be a Dad!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Simon Cowell has commented for the first time publicly about the fact that he's going to be a first-time-dad, and says he's nothing but proud.

The music mogul tells the BBC, simply, "I'm proud to be a dad. It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it."

His fathering a child with Lauren Silverman, who still married to now-estranged husband Andrew Silverman at the time, was not expected.

He's been keeping his distance from the mother of his unborn child until the drama subsides; she has settled her divorce as of last week, reportedly.

The X Factor judge, 53, nonetheless calls Lauren Silverman "a very special girl" and adds that "Things are changing in my life right now for the better."

A famous bachelor for many years, Cowell is certainly singing a different tune these days. But would he let his little boy or girl become a pop star?

Only on one condition, he said on the red carpet last night. Take a look:
