According to Us Weekly, Lauren is around 10 weeks pregnant and the baby is due in February, the Mirror reported. Cowell had previously said that he didn't believe he was the right material to be a dad, but his mother Julie recently said that he would make a fantastic father.
Cowell's showbiz pals are stunned as the news of him becoming a father emerged. Though Cowell and Lauren haven't confirmed the news yet and her husband Andrew declined to comment, Cowell's friend David Walliams confirmed the news on Twitter.
