Simon Cowell Expecting a Baby With Friend's Wife Lauren Silverman
US Magazine ^ | 07/31/2013 | ALLISON TAKEDA

Posted on 07/31/2013 1:57:00 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Simon Cowell has changed a lot of lives on American Idol, The X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent -- but he's about to undergo the most life-changing experience of all: fatherhood. The notoriously prickly Brit, 53, is expecting a baby with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, multiple sources reveal exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"She's around 10 weeks along," the insider shares. And that's only part of the story.

Silverman, 36, is technically still married -- to Cowell's close friend Andrew Silverman, a real estate mogul in NYC. She plans to leave her estranged husband to be with the father of her child.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while," a source tells Us. "As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."

In any case, diaper duty is a big deal for the X Factor judge, who has said on more than one occasion in the past that he's not cut out to be a dad. "God, no. I couldn't have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I'd go nuts," he crowed 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."

In recent years, however, his stance on the issue seems to have softened. Last year, he hinted in an interview with AOL Music that he hadn't entirely ruled out the idea of someday becoming a father.

"Well...yes," he said when asked if he'd changed his mind about children. "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."

Cowell's reps were unavailable for comment.

When it is documenting high-profile adultery and having kids out of wedlock, it is documenting a decaying culture, not “tabloid gossip”.

There is a section for stuff like this to be posted - it is called “general chat”. If you do not want to look at it, you can filter it out of your account.

I find it newsworthy (in the FR context) that the author doesn’t blink at a famous millionaire making a baby with his friend’s wife.

Defining deviancy down, Sodom and Gomorrah, alas Babylon.

I hasten to remind you that THERE IS a forum for things like this. It’s called the General/Chat Forum and there is an Entertainment/Music, TV/Movies section.

If you feel it is a clutter, i wonder why you bothered to even come to this thread.

There are photographs in the British papers of the two kissing on the husband’s boat while the husband went below deck to get something.

Just totally gross people.

She looks more like $1,000 a night.

But remember, you don’t pay her for sex.

You pay her to leave.

In many states the husband is liable for child support for children conceived in the marriage, even if not his.

That’s going to make for a strangely-worded birth announcement.
