Simon is about to become a dad for the first time! A source close to girlfriend Lauren revealed that the 36-year-old socialite was in labor with their son, and because Simon did not prioritize being by Lauren’s side so close to her due date, he was stuck oversees trying to book an emergency flight from London. Hopefully Simon makes it in time for the birth of his first child — a baby boy.
We bet Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman are buzzing with excitement while awaiting the birth of their first child together. The pair is gearing up to welcome its first baby — a boy — on Valentine’s Day. How sweet! Lauren went into labor a week and a half early, but thankfully, there is no reason for concern for her or the baby.
Simon Cowell’s Girlfriend Lauren Silverman Goes Into Labor
Simon, 54, and Lauren, 36, are about to welcome a baby boy on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day! Lauren went into labor early Feb. 14 and was transported to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. I guess The X Factor mogul did not plan on spending the romantic day with his girlfriend, because he was too busy in London filming one of his competition shows. It’s been reported that Simon was chartering a private plan to rush to Lauren’s side, but shouldn’t he have been there in the first place? This is the birth of his first child, after all!

Simon & Lauren: An Exciting Day For The Happy Couple
News broke in July that Simon was expecting a baby with Lauren, the ex-wife of Simon’s buddy, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. Lauren’s affair with Simon was ultimately the cause of her divorce from Andrew, the father of her 7-year-old son, Adam. Though their relationship raised some eyebrows in the beginning, the pair seems to be really ecstatic about its new addition. The first-time dad even told Hollywoodlife.com that he’s very excited to be a dad.
“I’ll be a good dad and Lauren will be a great mom,” Simon gushed. The mogul also admitted that raising his pups Diddly and Squiddly helped him prepare to be a dad but confessed that “they’re not trained at all,” and “they’re the worst behaved dogs in Beverly Hills!”
We can’t wait to hear what Simon and Lauren name their baby boy!
Tell us what you think Hollywoodlifers! Do you think Simon should have prioritized being by Lauren’s side so close to her due date?
