Simon Cowell Expecting a Baby With Lauren Silverman

Who Is Having a Baby With Simon Cowell?

It's been confirmed that Simon Cowell is having a baby with Lauren Silverman, a 36-year-old Manhattan socialite who's currently married to his friend Andrew Silverman. It will be the first child for the X Factor judge, and although Simon hesitated about having kids in the past, he seemed to change his tune last year when asked by AOL Music whether his feelings had shifted. "Well . . . yes. And no," he said. "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 and I've always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I've probably missed the opportunity." Now 53, it's clear that Simon didn't miss his chance, as he's now expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman. While details about the pair's relationship aren't quite clear, here's what we know about Lauren:

  • She's an American socialite. The baby will have parents from both sides of the pond, since Lauren is located in New York. She's also a bit younger than the British TV mogul — at 36, she's 17 years younger than Simon.
  • She's married, but getting divorced. Though still married, the Silvermans reportedly haven't been happy for a while. A source told Us Weekly that Lauren and Andrew — a New York real-estate bigwig — "have been unhappy in their marriage for some time," adding that a divorce has been "in the works." People has also reported that the Silvermans filed for divorce.
  • This will be her second child. Lauren and Andrew reportedly have one son together, and her current pregnancy is said to be 10 weeks along.
  • She's known Simon for a while. The Silvermans were seen on a St. Barths holiday with Simon in January 2012, and in April of that year, Lauren stepped out in London to support the launch of his biography by Tom Bower, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell.
