Simon Cowell officially has a new role: fatherhood!
A new report claims the former American Idol judge and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, became parents to a healthy baby boy on Valentine's Day.

"He has had a plane on standby for a week," claims a source.
The report also says her parents were also in the delivery room and her sister went right to the hospital as soon as she received the news.
As for the 36-year-old socialite's 8 -year-old son, Adam, wih ex-Andrew Silverman, he wasn't present.
"It's President's Day weekend and he had a pre-planned vacation with his father," another insider tells E! News.
“Life is fantastic at the moment,” the 54-year-old told Life & Style about becoming a father.
“I’d say this has been one of my favorite years. Even with all the stress and the drama it’s been incredible. There is so much happening.”

He added, "I just can’t believe how much has been crammed into one year. I never thought I’d be a father."
It was revealed the pair were expecting a child in late July -- two weeks after her estranged husband Andrew filed for an at-fault divorce in New York, citing adultery by his wife and naming Simon as a co-respondent.
This is the first child for Simon.
