Simon Cowell: His Baby's Gender Revealed!

Lauren Silverman
is about to have double the trouble in the man department.

Us Weekly” reports that Silverman, who is pregnant with Simon Cowell’s child, is expecting a baby boy.

“They’ve known for a while!” a source tells “Us.”

Simon himself opened up about becoming a first-time dad after staying silent while Silverman’s divorce drama played out.

“I feel very paternal right now. So I am very happy,” he told the “Times of London” this week, before joking, “I can assure you: I won’t go soft.”

 This is the second little boy for Silverman, not including Simon, of course. She and ex-husband Andrew Silverman have a 7-year-old son together, also named Andrew.

Simon also has his hands full with the new season of “The X Factor,” which features a new judging panel with the returning Demi Lovato, as well as Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

The two-night premiere of “The X Factor” begins next Wednesday, September 11 at 8pm.
