How Simon Cowell Made This Homeless Man's Day

Fatherhood is already looking good on a visibly softer Simon Cowell.

The soon-to-be dad, who’s known for having one of the sharpest tongues in Hollywood, extended a kind hand on Sunday to a homeless man who approached Cowell while he was stopped at a red light in Los Angeles.

The “X Factor” judge, who’s having his first baby with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, unhesitatingly reached into his pocket and handed over a $100 bill to the struggling guy.

But this isn't the first time we've seen a usually brass Cowell show us his gentler side.

For the past nine years, Cowell has been supporting Shooting Star CHASE, a UK hospice charity that offers its services free of charge, he told HELLO! back in March.

"Even if I didn't have what I have materially, I haven't got a sick child," Cowell told the magazine. "I feel so much for the parents and what they go through."
