We can think of another reason as to why Simon Cowell may be extra-excited to have a son.
"That's my life, it's always been that way," the expectant dad told E! News matter-of-factly at last night's red-carpet premiere of The X Factor, when asked what it's like to be surrounded by women this season at the judges' table.
"I've always had my ex-girlfriends around, a lot of my friends are girls—working with three girls on the panel is just a natural extension of that," Cowell shrugged.
The ladies man isn't kidding. He almost always has at least two exes with him, including last night, when he sat at the screening with makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy, who works on The X Factor, and Terri Seymour.
