Cow­ell de­lighted with Tom­lin­son’s daddy news

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Media mogul Si­mon Cow­ell (inset) is ab­so­lutely de­lighted with the news that One Di­rec­tion singer Louis Tom­lin­son (top) is set to be­come a fa­ther.

Cow­ell, who has 17-month-old son Eric with girl­friend Lau­ren Silverman, was one of the first peo­ple Tom­lin­son con­tacted three weeks ago af­ter learn­ing that Los An­ge­les-based stylist Bri­ana Jung­wirth is preg­nant with his child. “Si­mon was one of the first peo­ple Louis called af­ter he had told his fam­ily. Louis was so ex­cited and he wanted to tell Si­mon him­self,” said a source.

“Si­mon was ab­so­lutely de­lighted for Louis and told him that be­com­ing a dad was the best thing that had ever hap­pened to him,” the source added.

The X Fac­tor boss, 55, has as­sured the 23-year-old singer that he will be there to sup­port him as much as pos­si­ble when Jung­wirth, 23, gives birth early next year and has al­ready given him lots of par­ent­ing tips.

The in­sider added: “Si­mon knows Louis al­ready has lots of ex­pe­ri­ence with ba­bies and adores kids. Louis’ youngest twin brother and sis­ter are only 17 months old and he’s in­cred­i­bly close to all of his seven sib­lings — and his mum is a mid­wife. But ad­just­ing to be­ing a dad will be a change, of course, so hav­ing Si­mon’s ad­vice when he needs it means a lot to Louis.” Tom­lin­son and Jung­wirth met through mu­tual friends this year and while they “aren’t in a re­la­tion­ship,” the duo is said to be very happy to be ex­pect­ing their first child.
