Surprise! The X-Factor and former Idol judge is expecting a baby with one of his friend's wives...get all of the details behind the baby bombshell Baby bombshell alert!

Not only is X-Factor judge Simon Cowell going to be a dad, but he's having a baby with Lauren Silverman, who's married to one of his close friends!

Lauren is currently married to Simon's friend Andrew Silverman, but UsWeekly reports that the couple's been estranged for awhile and Lauren is leaving her husband for Simon.

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

Simon, Lauren and Andrew were all photographed on a yacht together in St. Barths in January 2012. Lauren, 36, is reportedly 10 weeks along.

The prickly 52-year-old former Idol judge once declared he didn't want any kids. "God, no, I couldn't have children," he said in 2009. "If I had them here drawing on the walls, I'd go nuts."

Do you think Simon will be a good dad?
