LONDON – British TV mogul Simon Cowell said he is looking forward to being a father, his first public confirmation that he will be having a child with married New York socialite Lauren Silverman.

Cowell, who had previously dodged questions about the affair, told the BBC that “things are changing in my life right now, for the better,” adding: “I’m proud to be a dad.”

The 53-year-old talent show curmudgeon said Silverman is “a very special girl” and that while he hadn’t thought of fatherhood before, “now I know I feel good about it.”

Cowell was speaking at the world premiere of the film “One Direction: This Is Us” in London on Tuesday.

    The woman probably wants his money so she got herself pregnant with Simon.

      ONE MONTH ago ang tuesday. A little comprehension please?!

        What I mean is, as of July 31, 2013, anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock (like yourself, perhaps?) has known that Silverman was already 10 weeks pregnant with Cowell’s child by then. It has been 3 whole months since.
