It’s going to be a boy for music mogul/X Factor bossman, Simon Cowell, 53, and socialite Lauren Silverman, 36.

Simon learned the news after seeing what he described as the “surreal” ultrasound of his baby, a source tells People Magazine.

“Simon couldn’t be happier,” the source says. “He is just so excited. All he talks about is the baby.”

The source also says Simon and Lauren are getting closer now that they’re expecting a child together, and that Simon’s a new person. “Lauren and the baby have really changed his life for the better.”

More to come!

FYI, I’m at a farm outside Montreal right now — here’s a pic — celebrating Rosh Hashana with the family; so, bygones, I’m a little late with our latest Celebrity Candy stories.
