But this morning, he received a call saying his baby was on its way so dashed straight to the airport to fly back to New York - which takes around seven hours.

Confirming the news, BGT judge Amanda Holden tweeted: "Wishing @simoncowell a safe flight and safe birth."

She added: "Thinking of him and Lauren over the next few hours. Very excited! #simonJr."
Earlier this week, Simon told Reveal that he isn't "nervous" about becoming a father.

He said: "Everyone else around me is more nervous than I am!

"Maybe that will change once it happens, but right now, I'm cool about it."
