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.
Simon has told Lauren that the money she'll get from Andrew Silveman is minimal (or at least unlikely to change) because of the prenup in place.
Moreover, Cowell plans to ensure that his child wants for nothing.
Lauren Silverman is nervous and doesn't want to upset Simon, but she and Andrew are at odds over their 7-year-old son, who he wants primary custody of.
Appeasing Simon may also mean appeasing Andrew, in other words.
All parties are looking to settle the divorce amicably for the sake of the kids, but there's also plenty of bad blood along with conflicting interests ... so stay tuned.
