Whaaaaaaat? Stop the presses. The world is coming to a screeching halt because apparently the world’s most eligible bachelor (and the richest one), 53-year-old Simon Cowell, is expecting a baby with New York socialite Lauren Silverman. His camp hasn’t confirmed these reports yet, but even his 87-year-old mother is talking the the press about it, so I guess this is happening.
From The Sun:
“I’ve not heard anything officially. But if it’s true then I’m absolutely delighted.
“It’s wonderful! He’ll make a fantastic father. He’ll be great.”
Oh, dear. According to that article, Lauren Silverman is his good friend’s girl, so there’s a shocker. Simon is always really good with kids so in a way, I can kind of see him being a really great father, if this is true. In another way, I’m kinda freaked out. What’s the world coming to when Simon Cowell has a baby?
Here’s what comedian David Walliams and his ex-girlfriend Sinitta tweeted (of course) about the news. You probably won’t know who those people are unless you’re English, but just go with it:
For the record @SimonCowell and I tried to have a baby together for many years. But I just couldn't get pregnant.
