The "Baywatch" star gushed to Wonderwall at the 2013 Do Something Awards in Los Angeles on July 31, "It's awesome. I'm super-happy for him. He's lovely."
After spending loads of time with Simon while working together on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2012, Carmen is sure that he will be an amazing parent. "I obviously think that his child will be very well taken care of and very, very loved," she explained.
The 41-year-old actress also cleared up the speculation about their alleged romantic relationship, claiming that it was merely a "flirtatious friendship." Carmen added, "All these rumors about us were swirling and there were so many, but people didn't really know what they were talking about."
Still, Carmen couldn't be happier for Simon, 53. "I'm very proud of him and so happy," she explained. "I'm going to call him, like, as soon as I get in the car after the event. I want to know if it's a boy or a girl!"
