Simon Cowell, judge of the television show, “X Factor” is going to be a father for the first time.
Cowell, who is 53, is expecting a baby with New York socialite, Lauren Silverman who is 36 and is said to be 10 weeks along.
While that is great news, there is one thing that is not so great, Lauren is married to Cowell’s friend, Andrew Silverman.
Silverman is a real estate mogul and has been friends, close friends with Cowell for many years.
US reports that the Silvermans are not happy though and are working on a divorce;
“Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,”
Cowell and Lauren reportedly became very close as the Silvermans fell apart.
Pictures of Cowell and Lauren together surfaced in late 2011, and early 2012, but Andrew Silverman was with them at those times aboard his yacht, as well as Simon’s ex Sinatta.
Lauren is said to be leaving Andrew to be with Cowell, though the divorce has been in the works for some time now.
Cowell is known for his relationships with gorgeous woman, and his last relationship ended in 2013 when he announced he had split with Carmen Electra;
“I’m now a single man. We spent time together and she is so much fun,”
When asked about kids in 2012 he said this;
“And, no. I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them. The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids. I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”
Well, his opportunity has arrived
Cowell who worked as judge for American Idol, was previously engaged to Idol makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy but they ended it in 2011 after being engaged for 18 months.
Calls to Simon’s people said this,
“This is a very sensitive issue and all media enquiries are being dealt with by his U.S. attorney.”
No word on the subject from Andrew Silverman or his reps.
We wish Simon and Lauren the best.
