Friends and family of Simon Cowell and the expectant Lauren Silverman have had mixed reactions to the pairs recent baby news.
Silverman, whose husband Andrew recently filed for divorce, already has a 7-year-old son. However, Silverman's stepmother is excited by the possibility of another grandchild.
'We are all excited for the baby," said Rosy Davis, according to the Daily Mail. "Any kid is a blessing."
As for Cowell's numerous female friends, they are not all quite as enthusiastic about the development as Davis. The X Factor judge's so-called 'harem' seems to be a little disappointed that Silverman is the one who gets to deliver Cowell's offspring.
"Simon is in no doubt the child is his. The other girls can't believe that she is the one who has [got his baby]. They've all met her, they know who she is and they have been reduced to tears by this," a source told the Daily Mail. "In the harem hierarchy, Lauren is regarded as the fun, party girl. Simon is [said to be] freaked out by this but there is no question that he will not support the child."
Meanwhile, Cowell's Britain's Got Talent fellow judges are supportive of the newest parent-to-be on the show.
"So! All Four Judges with potentially 4 kids under 2 for BGT 2014!!" tweeted judge Amanda Holden.
Cowell is currently filming auditions for the X Factor.
