(Newser) – Simon Cowell is about to become a dad ... but don't send him a card just yet. Multiple sources tell Us (you know, the not-as-reliable-as-People-but-more-reliable-than-Star tabloid) the former American Idol judge is expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman, a New York socialite who just so happens to be married to Cowell's good friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. She's planning to leave him to be with Cowell, insiders say; one says the "divorce has been in the works for a while," even before her relationship with Cowell began. The 36-year-old is supposedly about 10 weeks along.

The slightly-less-reliable-than-Us Daily Mail appears to have talked to the same sources, and that tabloid reports that Cowell and Silverman's romance started around a year ago and that the couple has been looking at houses together in LA. Cowell broke things off with former fiance Mezhgan Hussainy last year.
