The 'X Factor (US)' judge says seeing his child through the sonogram scan feels 'surreal' for him.
Simon Cowell has seen the first picture of his unborn baby through a sonogram scan. The British TV mogul says in an interview with The Times of London that he is excited and looking forward to being a dad now that he got a first glimpse at his child.
"It is just surreal," the judge on "The X Factor (US)" gushed. "You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now. So I am very happy." But the soon-to-be dad added quickly, "I can assure you: I won't go soft."
Simon is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman. When the pregnancy news broke out in August, she was still married to his friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. Soon after, the exes reached divorce settlement.
Lauren and Simon were repeatedly spotted enjoying PDA-filled outings together ever since.
