Simon Cowell is about to experience a different kind of reality: fatherhood. According to tabloid reports galore, the "X Factor" and "American Idol" judge is having a baby with socialite Lauren Silverman, the wife of his good friend Andrew Silverman.

An anonymous "insider" told Us Weekly that Silverman, 36, is 10 weeks into the pregnancy. A rep for the 53-year-old Cowell deflected questions on the report, telling People, "This is a very sensitive issue and all media enquiries are being dealt with by his U.S. attorney."

Silverman and her real estate mogul husband are said to be in the process of divorcing. The couple has vacationed with Cowell and his various girlfriends on numerous occasions over the past four years. Here they all are on a boat.

Prior to Silverman, Cowell recently dated actress Carmen Elektra and in 2011 broke off an engagement to makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy.
