The words are kind of scary, but also pretty adorable:

Simon Cowell is now a father.

The former American Idol judge and X Factor producer welcomed a boy named Eric into the world on Friday - and we've got the photograph to prove it!

The first-time father and girlfriend Lauren Silverman posted the following image of themselves and their two-day old baby online today, as not even Simon himself could think of anything negative to say about it.

“I never knew how much love and pride I would feel,” wrote Cowell as a caption.

News of Silverman's pregnancy broke in July, though she and Cowell remained quiet at first because Silverman was married to Simon's close friend at the time.

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:

Proud father-to-be Simon Cowell is expecting a boy with Lauren Silverman, reports say. They found out the news at her most recent ultrasound appointment.

"He is over the moon to be having a son," a source said.

Lauren Silverman is reportedly due in February.

Simon Cowell spent part of his Labor Day weekend in London gushing about the ultrasound photos of his unborn baby that he had recently seen.

"I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal," he told the UK Times in an interview. "You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around."

"I feel very paternal right now."

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:

So, Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell are having a baby apparently.

Who saw that coming? Not The X Factor judge, a new report claims.

The 53-year-old was completely blindsided by the news that his good friend’s wife was pregnant with his baby, according to the New York Daily News.

“The pregnancy took him by surprise. He assumed she was using birth control,” a source said. “Simon thought it was a casual relationship. Friends with benefits."

"The pregnancy was not planned. He is feeling tricked. No question Simon will want to be part of the baby’s life, but I’m not so sure he wants to be part of Lauren’s.”

The New York socialite is "around 10 weeks along," an insider shares.

Silverman, 36, is married to Andrew Silverman, a real estate mogul in New York and a close friend of Simon, 53, but they have been estranged.

She reportedly plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while," a source dished.

"As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."
