"Britain's Got Talent" London Auditions Photocall

Simon Cowell had some tough advice for One Direction’s new expecting father, Louis Tomlinson…’man up.'”I said to him, ‘You man up. You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that,’ ” Cowell told The Sun in a new interview. “But I also told him, ‘I’ve received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them. This is your business but I’m here for you.’ ”

Cowell then told People, “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.” The baby news was leaked last week….much to the surprise of One Directioners!
