Simon Cowell Impregnates Good Friendís Estranged Wife
Longtime reality show judge Simon Cowell might finally be ready to settle down. After working his way through numerous relationships with high profile women and always managing to avoid long-term commitment, the X Factor headman has found himself very much in the deep end. Heís reportedly been spending a lot of time with Lauren Silverman lately, and now, the New York socialite is reportedly pregnant with his child.
According to US Magazine, the thirty-six-year-old is about ten weeks into the pregnancy. Neither she nor the fifty-three-year-old Cowell have released any kind of statement confirming the news or commenting on their reaction to it, but thatís probably because the details of the entire thing are about as gossipy as it gets.
You see, Silverman is actually the wife, yes wife, of Simonís good buddy Andrew Silverman, a New York City real estate mogul. Andrew and Lauren have reportedly been having serious marital problems for quite awhile. As divorce lawyers were procured and the depressing details of the split were being worked out, she reportedly started hanging out with Simon quite a bit, and obviously, the relationship got sexual in a hurry. Itís probably safe to assume this baby wasnít planned for, but that doesnít necessarily mean part of Simon isnít euphoric, even given all the messy details.
The curmudgeonly Brit might talk a good game about wanting to live the single life, but in recent years, his tone has softened quite a bit. In fact, heís been very clear that maybe, possibly a child wouldnít be the worst addition to his life. Hereís what he told AOL Music last yearÖ
ĒI 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."
Given the complete lack of comments from either Cowell or Silverman and his distaste for making his private life public, it will likely be a long time before we learn any details concerning possible names and/ or the babyís sex. The judge/ executive producer has been very open in the past about his preference for a girl, which shouldnít surprise anyone considering how much he seems to bond with female contestants, but given his age and the surprise nature of the pregnancy, something tells me heíll be happy with whatever heís given.
Pop Blendís sincerest congratulations go out to Cowell and Silverman. This definitely wouldnít have been how the two would have drawn it up on paper, but that doesnít mean this impending baby canít be loved and appreciated, whether Simon and Lauren give it a real go together or not.
