Simon Cowell’s emotional reaction to scan

“It left me so happy” Simon Cowell talks about seeing his unborn baby


Seeing your unborn baby alive and healthy during a scan is a wonderful moment for parents. Suddenly, it all feels real. And Simon Cowell was just as excited as most when he saw his baby “moving around” during a scan.


“I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal. You see this thing, which is now alive moving around. So I am incredibly happy,” he told The Times.

New Yorker Lauren Silverman, the mother of his baby who is rumoured to be around 12 weeks pregnant, had the scan this week.

Simon, 53, admitted that the pregnancy took him by surprise. “Once I heard the news about the baby, it was a little bit of a shock but now I’m used to it, and then I became incredibly paternal and protective and I feel very attached to the baby already,” he told the MailOnline.

“The fact that it can happen at this time in my life is fantastic, maybe a miracle,” he said. “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.

“Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. She [Lauren]’s a very special girl,”

Though separated, Lauren, 36, was still married when the pregnancy story broke. She’s now reached an amicable divorce settlement and agreed custody of her 7-year-old son with her husband of 10 years.

The reason for her divorce was cited as adultery, with Simon implicated as “co-respondent” in the court papers.

The X Factor judge is famous for being strict. When asked whether he would change after the baby is born, he told The Times: “I can assure you, I won’t go too soft.”
