Simon Cowell Breaks His Baby Silence

It was announced Wednesday that Simon Cowell is expecting a baby with married socialite, Lauren Silverman.

Given that Simon Cowell and the rest of the 'X Factor' crew were on stage for the Television Critics Association Press Tour on Thursday, Cowell finally had to field questions regarding his impending fatherhood.

Cowell tried to make light of the situation while staying tight-lipped.

"I haven't read the newspapers. Am I missing something?" Cowell said. "Sorry. Unfortunately, I have to keep this private for the moment. It's just one of those things, but thank you anyway."

He spoke briefly after the panel as well.

"There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right," he said. "I really have to be sensitive here because there are a lot of people's feelings involved."

The New York Post is reporting that Andrew filed for divorce two weeks ago, citing infidelity and specifically Cowell as a co-respondent.
