It's a boy for Simon Cowell! Well, not yet, but it will be a son soon for the 'X Factor' judge, a source tells the New York Daily News.

And the famously nasty TV judge reportedly couldn't be any happier about it. "He is over the moon to be having a son," the source reveals.

It will be the first child for Cowell, 53, and the second for his baby mama, Lauren Silverman, 36. The New York socialite and her real estate tycoon husband, a former pal of Simon's, settled their divorce amicably in August. The spouses were still very much together when the baby was conceived, but the shocking news broke up both their marriage and Andrew Silverman's close friendship with Cowell. The baby's due date has not been made public.

Simon and Lauren's romance appears to still be going strong, as they were just spotted vacationing in Europe together. Whether or not the relationship continues, Simon sounds really ready to be a dad. "I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal," he told the U.K. Times on Monday (Sept. 2). "You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now."

Looks like Demi Lovato was right -- Simon is a real softie inside!
