There's nothing like a good celebrity scandal to kick start your day: US Weekly has exclusively reported that Simon Cowell's married-to-another girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, is pregnant. An insider has dished that Lauren, a NYC socialite who is married to Cowell's friend real estate mogul Andrew Silverman, is "around 10 weeks along" and planning to leave her husband.
Apparently the marriage between Lauren and Andrew has been long troubled and Cowell was a more than sympathetic shoulder. The insider revealed: "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."
The baby shocker follows a 2009 interview with the American Idol and X Factor judge in which the now fifty three year old Cowell insisted: "God, no. I couldn't have children." Apparently a lot can change in four years and when the right woman comes along. Just last year he was quoted saying in an AOL Music interview: "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."
