Simon feels 'good' about upcoming child

Simon Cowell has broken his silence about his baby mama drama.

At the world premiere of One Direction: This Is Us in London on Tuesday, the 53-year-old British music mogul not only confirmed that he's expecting a child with married US socialite Lauren Silverman, but is happily anticipating his bundle of joy.

"Things are changing in my life right now, for the better," he told BBC. "I'm proud to be a dad.

"It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it. She's (Silverman) a very special girl."

Silverman, 36, reportedly reached a divorce settlement with Cowell's friend Andrew Silverman recently.
