Is the outspoken X-Factor judge on his way to fatherhood? A new report reveals that Simon will be welcoming his first child with his best friend’s separated wife!
The famous bachelor, Simon Cowell, 53, is changing his tune! Though he has previously been very adamant about not having the time to devote to kids, Simon has recently been softening his stance. In fact, the television personality is expecting a child with New York City socialite Lauren Silverman, according to a new report.
Simon Cowell Expecting Baby With Lauren Silverman — Report
Simon and Lauren are expecting their first child together, according to inside sources! “She’s around 10 weeks along,” an insider tells Us Weekly.
Lauren, 36, is technically married to Andrew Silverman, a real estate developer and close personal friend of Simon Cowell, but their divorce has been a long time coming.
“Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while. As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close,” reports Us Weekly.
Sources close to the pair reveal they have been seeing each other for about a year.
Simon Cowell Changes His Mind About Having Children
Simon has previously been very vocal about his stance on kids — and there’s a reason that he hasn’t had any yet.
“God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts,” reports Us Weekly about Simon’s comments in 2009.
With kids, you’ve got a routine you can’t escape from. You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.
But now Simon’s embracing the idea a little bit more. When the mag asked if he has changed his mind about kids in 2012, Simon responded:
Well…yes. 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.
Now that he’s 53, he’s proving that it’s never too late!
We have reached out to Simon’s reps and are awaiting official comment on this story.
