Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell: Baby scan was 'surreal'

Simon Cowell has been to see the first scan of his unborn baby.

The 53-year-old music mogul, who is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, admits it was a ''surreal'' moment watching the little one wriggle around on the screen, and he can't wait to meet his child.

When asked if he's looking forward to fatherhood, he said: ''Yes, I am. I just went to see a scan and it is just surreal. You see this thing which is now alive moving around. So I am happy.''

Despite his impending fatherhood, Simon - who previously said he was never interested in having kids - insists he will not lose his no-nonsense approach to showbusiness and become a walkover when he is a dad.

He added in an interview with The Times newspaper: ''I can assure you: I won't go too soft.''

Simon recently admitted he is ''proud'' at the thought of becoming a dad for the first time and he can't wait to go through parenthood with Lauren.

He said: ''I'm proud to be a dad. It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it.

''Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. She [Lauren]'s a very special girl.''
