Who would ever have dreamed that Simon Cowell, the notoriously mean 'American Idol' and 'X Factor' judge, would one day become a father? As it happened, on July 31, 2013 the world was shocked to find out that Simon had knocked up the wife of one of his good friends.
Lauren Silverman, revealed as Simon's baby mama, is a New York socialite who was still married to real estate developer Andrew Silverman when she became pregnant. As recently as 2012, both Silvermans had hung out with Simon on a yacht in St. Barts. Allegedly, Simon and Lauren's affair may have begun as long ago as 2009.
Although Simon was named as a co-respondent in divorce papers filed by Andrew Silverman, the case was settled privately by mid-August 2013, and Simon didn't end up having to go to court.
So what does Simon Cowell himself think of all this? Read on to find out!
