Simon Cowell is about to become a first-time dad at the tender age of 53. This is after he has been quoted in the past as saying he could never have children. Apparently, he’s changed his mind. His baby’s mamma, Lauran Silverman, is actually his close friend’s wife. Lauren is reportedly 10-weeks along so there is plenty of time for the two to prepare for baby’s arrival.
According to US Magazine, Lauren is planning to leave her estranged husband once and for all to be with Cowell. She and her husband, a New York City real estate mogul, have supposedly been unhappy for quite some time. As they grew apart, her and Cowell had time to grow closer together. Let’s just hope that he does not yell at her or the baby the way he does those he addresses on his popular shows. Anyone remember the American Idol days?
He was quoted as saying “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.” But the truth is that Simon Cowell might not think it would be so bad to be a daddy. He went on to say “Well…yes,” when asked if he had not fully ruled out the possibility of having kids during an AOL Music interview last year. This might not be the exact scenario he had in mind, but it seems to be an exciting time for the both of them none-the-less.
