Technically he's not a father yet, but we appreciate the enthusiasm!
At the London's May Fair Hotel - Cowell watched the first episode of the UK show - which he departed in 2010 to start its US counterpart - and after its screening he addressed the new baby that's about to enter his life and told the audience:
"[He] feels like a very proud daddy."
The reality show judge has recently been spending A LOT of time with his future baby's momma Lauren Silverman, and it seems like Simon has been very happy these past few weeks!
We can't lie - we're super excited for that baby to pop out of its bump so we can see some pictures of Simon and the bundle of love!
And it seems like Mr. Cowell is super excited, too!
