"I'm proud to be a dad," Cowell, 53, told the BBC, marking the first time he has publicly spoken about the pregnancy since the news broke last month.
"Things are changing in my life for the better," Simon said."[Silverman] is a very special girl."
Cowell admitted he had some reservations about being a dad at first, but "now I know I feel good about it."
The baby's gender and anticipated due date have not been reported.
