"I said to him, 'You man up,'" Cowell told The Sun of the advice he shared. "'You’re fortunate because you're in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.'"
Simon Cowell knows all too well how an unexpected pregnancy can turn into a blessing.
"But I also told him, 'I've received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them,'" Cowell added. "This is your business but I'm here for you.' He didn't kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it's a plus, not a negative."
