Simon Cowell is reportedly feeling good about becoming a dad as his longtime lover Lauren Silverman is pregnant.

Though there’s been some controversy surrounding the X Factor judge coming to terms with fatherhood (because Lauren is Simon’s friend’s ex-wife) it seems that he’s putting his best foot forward while trying to work it all out in the best, most positive way possible for his future family.

Yesterday, Simon told BBC at the London Premiere of One Direction’s documentary “This Is Us”:

“I’m proud to be a dad.”

He also added that Lauren is special:

“Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. It’s something I haven’t thought of before, and then, now I know I feel good about it. And she’s a very special girl.”

This obviously confirms the ongoing baby rumors and hopefully Lauren or Simon will break their silence on the cheating scandal soon. Baby steps are good though, as this is the first time Simon has publicly acknowledged that he is expecting a child.
