Simon Cowell is reportedly ready to settle down, which is even more shocking than this summer's bombshell revelation that he's going to be a first-time father.

Cowell, 54, has supposedly purchased a ring and is ready to propose to Lauren Silverman, 36, who he got pregnant while she was still with her husband.

"Simon's mad about her," one source said of the mogul.

"But I think that he'll wait until after she gives birth."

Lauren Silverman is due in February and Cowell recently told Ryan Seacrest in an interview, "Let's put it this way, I wouldn't expect her to be a single mother."

How did Simon Cowell react to the news that he was going to be a father?

Was he overwhelmed with joy? Was he blindsided by Lauren Silverman?

A little of both.

In an interview on Ellen airing Tuesday, he says he thought “Oh my God, this is exciting, and it’s going to be a bit of a nightmare for the next few weeks.”

He’s referring to the fact that Lauren Silverman was still with her husband, Andrew, as the baby news broke earlier this summer. Recalls Cowell:

Look away, Lauren Silverman. Look away...

In a new commercial for The X Factor in Israel, model Bar Refaeli drives over to producer Simon Cowell and flirts up a serious storm as she introduces him to the judges on this country's version of the program: Ivri Lider, Shiri Maimon, Rami Fortis, and Moshe Peretz.

Refaeli, of course, is no stranger to racy promos.

Folks are still talking about the GoDaddy Super Bowl spot in which she makes out with some lucky nerd.

The X Factor will premiere in Israel (and the United States) later this month. Watch the sexy commercial now:

Sources say Simon Cowell and baby mama-to-be Lauren Silverman are "100 percent" together, and are not afraid to let the world know it apparently.

The lovebirds, who are expecting their first child together, were spotted kissing and cuddling by the beach in the South of France, PDA style.

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman recently went public for the first time since the baby bombshell broke, and are going all out in doing so.

They've had no problem showing off their affection for each other while vacationing together in St. Tropez, enjoying a romantic getaway for the first time.

A beaming Simon Cowell, proud to be a dad indeed, held hands with Lauren Silverman, who is carrying his child, while walking along a French beach.

It was the first time they have been seen together since news of her pregnancy broke - and reportedly blindsided Cowell along with everyone else.

The X Factor judge, 53, is set to become a first-time dad with Lauren Silverman, who came to a divorce settlement with her husband, Andrew Silverman.

He and Cowell were once close friends. The estranged pair settled their split, including custody of their son, 7, two weeks after the pregnancy bombshell.

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:
