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:

The settlement occurred just a few hours ago, as Andrew and Lauren Silverman have agreed to some form of joint custody over their 7-year-old son.

She will receive just over $2 million in financial compensation, as well.

Lauren will remain in New York City so she can be close to her son, though she is still in a relationship with Simon Cowell, contrary to previous reports.

Simon Cowell is refusing to see pregnant baby-mama-to-be Lauren Silverman until the drama surrounding their tryst dies down, according to reports.

Regarding still-married Lauren Silverman, 36, the insider adds, "It's obvious that the drama with [husband] Andrew that involved Simon, makes him a bit upset."

Cowell "has been in contact with Lauren since her divorce turned messy" but has told friends that "won't see Lauren in person until things calm down."

The pregnant Lauren Silverman is not happy with reports that she is considering abandoning her fight for custody of her son to be with Simon Cowell.

Simon's soon-to-be baby mama, who he's reportedly been obsessed with for years and has had an affair with since 2009, is particularly upset about one thing:

A report that she is faced with having to either move to Beverly Hills and live with Simon in his $15 million mansion or stay in NYC with her son, 7.

Her friends say she is remaining in NYC, would never move away from the city and is not considering any living arrangement in which she'd be apart from her son.

Is Simon Cowell giving Lauren Silverman his $15 million mansion in Beverly Hills?

The NYC socialite, who’s reportedly 11 weeks pregnant with the music mogul’s child, will reportedly want for nothing as she raises her child with Simon.

She will reportedly live in the 7,265 sq.-foot property with the child and her mother.

Simon, meanwhile, will keep a place nearby to visit ... if they're not still together.

He has a longtime habit of giving a house to his exes as a parting gift, but in this case, there is no parting, but keeping an unconventional family whole.

Simon Cowell's affair with Lauren Silverman, who's pregnant with his child, was reportedly going on since 2009, long before she separated from her husband.

When did Andrew Sullivan find about it?

Cowell's relationship with Lauren Silverman earned him a place as a co-respondent in Andrew's divorce filing, but what he knew and when is unclear.

Some sources say she would spend hours on the phone at her home talking to Simon, and Andrew - also his close friend - heard the whole thing. 

According to certain friends, Andrew clearly knew that Simon was banging his wife, and they think the faux outrage he's expressing now is a crock.

Has Simon Cowell been having an affair with his married baby-mama-to-be, Lauren Silverman, since 2009? That's the allegation of a new Us report.

Though her pregnancy blindsided Cowell, and Lauren and Andrew Sullivan were estranged, a source claims the two have been getting it on for years.

"Lauren has loved Simon forever," says a source close to the NYC socialite, mom to 7-year-old son Adam. "And they started having an affair four years ago."

It began as a fling, but the baby changed that. Simon may or may not be a home-wrecker, as Andrew Sullivan claims he is, but he's committed now.

"Simon and Lauren are together," says a Silverman family source.

Not only was he blindsided by her pregnancy, but Simon Cowell is equally upset that he's been dragged into the ugly divorce of Lauren Silverman and her husband.

As a result, he's already pressuring her to settle it quietly and quickly.

Simon reportedly loves Lauren - they may still be together after all this - and will be a devoted father to their child, but loathes the bad PR this is bringing him.

Basically, it makes him look like an underhanded home-wrecker.

The X Factor judge may've been blindsided by the pregnancy just like we were, but almost immediately said that his future child will "want for nothing."

Cowell plans to gladly provide for the child, and not just financially. He plans to be a committed, involved parent with a big role in raising the child.

Which begs the question of his current status with his baby mama.

As for Lauren Silverman, he reportedly felt betrayed by the pregnancy revelation, but at the same time, he's never been happier than when he's with her.
