How Fitting: Simon Cowell Becomes a Dad on Valentine's Day

Bauer GriffinWhen you think of love and pink candy hearts, Simon Cowell is probably the last celebrity who comes to mind. But, you can bet the TV talent show judge will be celebrating Valentine's Day every year for the rest of his life now, since his first child came into the world today.

That's right, Simon Cowell is officially a dad. Of a human baby. His girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to a baby boy at 5:45pm in New York. The little bundle of joy's name hasn't been released, but he weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces when he made his world debut, reports People.

Cowell was present for the birth, despite being in London when his gal went into labor early Friday. He supposedly took a private jet across the pond so he could be there.

Cowell has yet to tweet about his new role as father, but he was actually pretty excited about it in the months leading up to today. He's not such a grinch after all. “You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now,” he said following an ultrasound.

Congrats to the happy family.
