Simon Cowell is allegedly going to be a dad, but you'll be surprised at who the mom is and the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy.

According to US Weekly, the mom-to-be is the wife of one of Cowell's good friends. The mag says 36-year-old Lauren Silverman is "around 10 weeks along." However, Silverman is still married to Simon's buddy, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman!

The insider who spoke to US Weekly clarifies that the Silvermans' marriage was already over at the time of a Cowell-Silverman get together. No one wants to think of the 53-year-old host of 'American Idol' and 'X-Factor' as a home wrecker!

No reaction from the Cowell camp yet about the big news, but he's gone on the record in the past about becoming a father. In an interview four years ago Cowell said he didn't want to have children. But just last year, his stance seemed to soften saying he "really, really likes kids" it's just that he works too much and he thought he may have missed his opportunity.

Well Simon, it looks like you may have to free up some time in your schedule!
