The 53-year-old music mogul is expecting a child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, according to US weekly.

Although Silverman (36) is still married to Cowell’s friend Andrew Silverman, the magazine reports the pair are estranged.

"She's around 10 weeks along," the insider told the magazine.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while. As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."

Cowell had previously stated he did not want to be a father.

In 2009 responding to journalists questions he said: “God, no. I couldn't have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I'd go nuts.

"With kids, you've got a routine you can't escape from. You've got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking."

Representatives for Cowell are yet to confirm the story.
