Lauren Silverman's Mom Says She's Thrilled About Her Impending Grandson

If we could all arrange our lives in any way we saw fit, most of us would choose to live in a fairy tale. We’d meet the person of our dreams in our mid to late twenties. We’d get married a couple of years later and the kids and a beautiful house would quickly follow. Unfortunately, more often than not, life is a hell of a lot more complicated than that. We have kids earlier than expected or later than expected. We initially marry or procreate with the wrong person. In short, the specifics often wind up getting extremely messy and sometimes embarrassing, but that doesn’t mean, after the dust settles, there isn’t an incredible amount of joy to be found. Just ask Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman.

The two have spent more than a month at the center of a media firestorm, but in recent weeks, it has started to die down a bit. He’s started work again on X Factor, and she’s now officially divorced. Both of those adjustments have shifted the headlines and allowed them to take a step back and realize just how incredibly happy they are. Simon himself gushed about it on Ellen earlier this week, and now, Silverman’s mother, Carole Salande, reached out to E! News to do the same thing.

"We're all excited and we're all doing well. I'm just happy to be up here spending time with everyone."

The here in question is New York. Salande lives in Florida, but she made the trek North in order to help her daughter a) prepare for the baby and b) enjoy the Jewish New Year. Moving forward, she should have plenty of reasons to smile once her grandson is born, and with Simon spending lots of time in Los Angeles for X Factor, she should be needed in New York pretty often, which, for a grandmother, is a very good feeling.

Pop Blend’s sincerest congratulations go out to Cowell and Silverman during this exciting time.
