USA TODAY - X Factor creator and former American Idol judge Simon Cowell, 53, will be the dad to a baby boy with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 36, according to separate reports citing unnamed sources in New York's Daily News and Us Weekly.
"He is over the moon to be having a son," a source told the Daily News' Confidenti@l blog. Us Weekly cited "an insider" who said "they've known for a while!"
The child is due in February.
Cowell and Silverman's relationship had been a secret until late July, when it was revealed that they were expecting a baby together.
