A report this Wednesday morning, July 31, is claiming that Simon Cowell is expecting a child with his friend’s wife.
Us Weekly reports that “multiple sources” have confirmed to them that The X Factor judge and New York socialite Lauren Silverman are having a baby, despite the fact that Silverman is married to Cowell’s pal Andrew Silverman. “Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” one source tells the magazine. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”
Lauren is reportedly 10 weeks along, but Cowell’s reps have yet to comment.
Us also points out that the 53-year-old TV judge has been adamant about not wanting children. “I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them,” he told AOL Music this past year. “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.”
