Cowell, who has returned to the U.K. for the launch of the latest series of his talent show "The X Factor," is expecting a baby with New York socialite Lauren Silverman and admits he is looking forward to becoming a first-time dad.
He tells British newspaper The Times, "I went to see a scan today and it is just surreal. You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now. So, I am very happy."
