Britain’s Got Talent 2013: David Walliams is glad he can now talk about Simon Cowell’s baby news! He’s known for weeks!
It’s been revealed today that music mogul Simon Cowell told his fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams that he was expecting a baby with US socialite Lauren Silverman weeks before the news hit the headlines…
But now that it’s public knowledge – though Simon is STILL to make any official comment on the drama – that Simon fathered the unborn baby, David has stated that he’ll be “a fantastic dad.”
David, who has of course himself become a dad for the first time this year, told the Daily Mirror, “I had this incredible information but it was a private thing, which I had to respect.”
But ever the joker, he added on Twitter, “For the record @ SimonCowell and I tried to have a baby together for many years. But I just couldn’t get pregnant.”
On a more serious note, of Simon and Lauren’s baby news, David added, “I’m thrilled for them.
“He’ll be a fantastic dad, he’s brilliant with kids.
“He’s really generous with his time for them. He’s seen as a bit of a Bond villain but he’s quite cuddly.”
I very much doubt Simon’s former friend Andrew – the now ex-husband of Lauren – would use ‘cuddly’ as an adjective when discussing the X Factor guru…
That said, we probably couldn’t publish any he might use anyway.
