Simon Cowell is going to be a father, a report says.
The 53-year-old, acerbic "American Idol" alum and current "X Factor" judge is expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman, a 36-year-old New York socialite who is married to his friend, real estate developer Andrew Sullivan, People and Us magazines reported on Wednesday, July 31. The couple and Cowell's spokespeople have not commented.
The Silvermans have reportedly filed for divorce, People added.
Cowell also serves as a judge on the reality show "Britain's Got Talent" in his native United Kingdom. Fellow judge and comedian David Walliams joked about the baby reports on Twitter.
"For the record @SimonCowell and I tried to have a baby together for many years," he tweeted. "But I just couldn't get pregnant."
