Yeah, keep smiling, dad.



X Factor judge Simon Cowell is not only going to be a daddy for the first time, but he's having the baby with his friend's wife. Because all the single women he's been dating are just too boring, sounds like.

New York socialite Lauren Silverman, 36, who is still married to real estate champ (and Cowell's close friend) Andrew Silverman, is pregnant with the music man's baby, Us Weekly reports. "She's around 10 weeks along," a source tells the mag. We sure hope the divorce papers come before the birth.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while," another source says. "As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close." Well, apparently.

Simon has said in the past he couldn't bear the idea of being a father, but all that time dating Carmen Electra, Mezghan Hussainy, Jackie St.Clair and Terri Seymour must have changed his mind. Either that or his 53rd birthday did it. Either way, we're pretty sure he's off Silverman Super Bowl Party invite list now.
