Simon Cowell has confirmed the sex of his unborn baby – the music and TV mogul’s girlfriend is pregnant with his son.

Cowell let the news slip during a recent interview with Access Hollywood when reporter Shaun Robinson asked the dad-to-be if he would be strapping a baby seat into his Bugati sports car ahead of his first child’s arrival.

He said, “Yes, of course he’s got to learn how to drive very quickly.”

Robinson didn’t pick up on what The X Factor boss said right away and asked the follow-up question, “Have you found out the sex of the baby yet?” prompting an embarrassed Cowell to respond, “I think I just gave it away, Shaun.”

The interviewer replied, “You certainly did. Oh my gosh!”

Cowell then added, “Everybody knows anyway. It’s a boy… The first time I saw it (on an ultrasound)… I called him Tad, because he looked like a tadpole. I still wanna call him Tad.”

Cowell’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman confirmed reports she’s expecting a baby with him this summer.
