Is a little one really on the way for the outspoken TV judge? Out for the first time since the news broke, Simon isn’t exactly denying anything!
Simon Cowell, 53, is reportedly expecting a child with New York City socialite — and his best friend’s wife! — Lauren Silverman. When explicitly asked by reporters whether or not the reports were true, Simon kept mum, but teased the cameras with a smug smile!
Lauren Silverman Pregnant: Simon Cowell Reacts To Reports
In a new paparazzi video, Simon is shown leaving the X Factor US studios in Los Angeles in the early morning on August 1.
“Simon, congratulations! Are the rumors true?” yells an unseen reporter on the video.
Typically private about his personal life, Simon keeps quiet when faced with reporters’ questions. But he gave the photographers a sly smile as he ducked into his car.
Simon is “freaked out” by the news of impending fatherhood, reports The Daily Mail. And, judging by his face, he surely wasn’t ready for the paparazzi’s curiosity as he exited the X Factor studios!
