You guessed it – it’s a boy!

And apparently Simon Cowell is over the moon.

Names for the little one are already being debated, and according to Ladbrokes it’s a 4/1 that Simon will be top choice!

Unfortunately for his X Factor colleagues, Gary and Louis are both clear outsiders at 33/1.

This is Simon’s first child, but the music manager is confident he’s going to do a good job.

He told the BBC: ‘I am good with kids because I like kids. I really do like them and I listen to them.

‘I think I will be a good dad, so I’m excited!’

Simon, 53, and his New York socialite girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 36, are expecting their first child in February next year

Looks like Simon’s fashion legacy is going to be passed down the generations – long live the high-waisted jeans!
