Simon Cowell Admits 'Circumstances Were A Bit Awkward' Behind Baby Surprise

Simon Cowell is making the rounds to promote the upcoming season of 'The X Factor' and answering the inevitable questions about becoming a dad.

Cowell is expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman, the now ex-wife of his former friend Andrew Silverman.

"Yeah, that was a bit of a shocker," Cowell told Leno on Friday night. "When you first get the call you're kind of like 'Okay', put the phone down and gulp. And then I got used to the idea."

"Circumstances were a bit awkward," he admitted.

"I think awkward is the great English word," quipped Jay Leno as the crowd laughed.

"It says a lot, doesn't it?," said Cowell. "But, you know, everything is fine now and I am happy and she's adorable."

In a separate interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Cowell went into a bit more detail.

"I can't blame the media because I've got a juicy story. But there was a lot of stuff said about her... that she trapped me and she's a gold digger. That's absolute nonsense. She's a great girl."

"But these things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I'm happy. I'm actually happier than I've ever been."

DeGeneres also presented the judge with a tiny black T-shirt that appeared to be for the child but she quipped it was actually for Cowell and pulled out an even smaller T-shirt for the newborn.

He said the child will be raised in "New York, Los Angeles and London."
