Feb. 14, 2014 -- With Lauren Silverman going into labor early today, Simon Cowell just landed in New York from London and spoke to reporters about his son's impending birth.
He said Silverman hasn't had the baby yet, but that his baby boy is coming "any second now."
He added that his girlfriend is "doing great" then headed into Lenox Hill Hospital.
After weeks of speculation that he and Silverman were expecting, Cowell revealed in August that he in fact was going to be a father.
"I'm proud to be a dad," Cowell told the BBC. "Things are changing in my life right now, for the better."
A few weeks later, Cowell added that the baby would be a boy. Cowell told "Extra!" he had a few choices when it came to names.
"My number one choice is Simon, 'cause I like the name," he said in November of naming the baby after himself.
But if Cowell, 54, doesn't name his son after himself, his second choice is after his father.
"His birthday is going to be very close to my dad's birthday," he said. "So, I think second choice would be Eric."
News broke in July of the pregnancy while Silverman was still married to real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. They have since divorced.
This will be Silverman's second child. She has a 7-year-old son with her ex-husband.
TMZ was the first to break the news of the labor.
