Simon Cowell on his baby mama Lauren Silverman: “She’s a great girl”

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Tuesday, Cowell opened up about Lauren Silverman and his feelings about the pregnancy.

“There was a lot of stuff said about her, that she trapped me and that she’s a gold digger. Absolute nonsense,” he says about allegations that appeared in the media. “She’s a great girl.”

The X Factor judge revealed he is excited about the fact that he will become a father, but also admitted that the situation “was kind of uncomfortable.”

“But these things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I’m happy. I’m actually happier than I’ve ever been,” he added.

The pregnancy news came to light in July.
