Is it possible that “Mr. Nasty” is changing his ways?

That appears to be the case, as “People” has learned that Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman have reunited and planning for the future in France after he attended the London premiere of "One Direction: This Is Us" earlier this week.

“He is very pleased that her divorce is finalized, and he is excited about spending time with Lauren,” an insider tells “People” of the notorious bachelor. “He wants to make sure that she and the baby are doing okay. He is getting more and more excited about the baby.”

Cowell and Silverman are said to be “an item” now that her marriage to estranged husband Andrew Silverman is officially over.

While the “X Factor” judge allegedly has no plans to settle down with Silverman, a source says that he could change his mind in the long run.

“But Simon is a softy at heart, and his feelings could definitely change. No one would have ever thought that he would be this excited about a surprise baby,” the source said. “Little baby Cowell seems to have really changed Simon already.”

The unborn child is the first for Cowell, though Silverman has a 7-year-old son from her marriage. This week, he finally confirmed the reports that he was going to be a father, saying, “I’m proud to be a dad.”
