Simon Cowell's new X Factor playmates Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio have weighed in to gossip the music mogul is set to become a dad, insisting he'll be a great dad.
Former American Idol star Jennifer Hudson and close pal Carmen Electra also gave TV's Mr. Mean the thumbs up as a dad earlier this week (beg29Jul13), and now his fellow judges have offered their opinion.
Former Destiny's Child star Rowland, who has teamed up with Cowell on British talent shows in the past, says, "I think that Simon has always been a very classy guy, he's always been a very respected guy, and he's going to be a great father."
Rubio agrees, but cautions, "It is part of life, the gossip. He didn't tell me anything yet, but I will support him if it (news) is true."
It has been reported that Lauren Silverman, the socialite wife of Cowell's friend Andrew Silverman, is expecting the music boss' child.
