Simon is totally supporting Louis as he and baby mama Briana Jungwirth prepare for this new chapter. Overall, Simon has a pretty great attitude about the whole situation, telling The Sun (via Sugarscape): "I said to him, 'You man up. You're fortunate because you're in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.'"
He added, "But I also told him, 'I've received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them. This is your business but I'm here for you.'"
So, is this as official a confirmation as we're going to get, seeing as Louis hasn't stepped up to release a statement? We'd say so.
Simon noted, "He didn't kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it's a plus, not a negative."
