Simon Cowell became a dad at 54 years old after years of saying he didn't want children. Whether or not it happened on purpose (doubtful), Simon seems to have taken to daddyhood just fine (until he has to change a diaper!). Simon isn't the first guy we've been shocked became a father. Whether it's because the guy is known as a player, or he's said he didn't want them, or he's not even in a relationship, Hollywood is full of dudes who suddenly became dads much to everyone's jaw hitting the floor. Here are 10 men we never really expected to become dads.
Simon went 54 years without managing to become a dad until he met his good friend's wife, Lauren Silverman. The two created baby Eric while Lauren was still married. At first it looked like Simon might totally resent his sudden daddyhood, but now he seems to revel in it, posting almost non-stop about his newfound joy on Twitter.
