Simon Cowell, the notoriously acerbic Brit of "American Idol" and "Britain's Got Talent" fame, is expecting a baby with his close friend's wife, Us Weekly reported.
New York socialite Lauren Silverman, the 36-year-old wife of real estate mogul Andrew Silverman, is reportedly 10 weeks along in her pregnancy, a source told the gossip magazine.
Though the Silvermans are still technically married, they've been on the rocks for a while.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while," the source told Us. "As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."
Lauren Silverman reportedly plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell.
Cowell, who split with his fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy last year, has said in the past he doesn’t want children, but he must have changed his mind earlier this year.
"If I knew I could be – how do I put this delicately – faithful, I would," he said in an interview. "I do like kids, I'm just not sure I’d be any good for the first six months. I don’t think I'd adopt because I’d rather have my own. I'd have to say I'd like a little girl."
