NEW YORK: `X Factor’ mogul Simon Cowell, who is centre-stage in tabloids these days for impregnating his friend Andrew Silverman’s estranged wife Lauren, on Tuesday confirmed that he is the father of the baby the 36-year-old New York socialite is carrying.
The 53-year-old told the BBC, “I’m proud to be a dad…It’s something I hadn’t thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it.’’
Simon Cowell, who topped the list of best paid US TV personalities in 2012 by earning $95 million, said: “Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. She (Lauren) is a very special girl.”
