After facing the paparazzi at the One D premiere and commenting on his impending fatherhood for the first time, Simon jetted to the South of France for a reunion with his baby mama, Lauren Silverman.
Since the news broke of their relationship, and while the particulars of her divorce played out, Simon and Lauren kept their distance from each other.
Now that the Silvermans’ divorce is final, the parents-to-be are reportedly planning their future together.
According to People magazine, “Simon still has no plans to live with Lauren permanently, or to get married. But Simon is a softy at heart, and his feelings could definitely change. No one would have ever thought that he would be this excited about a surprise baby.”
The X Factor judge stayed mum on the subject for weeks until a few days ago when he told the BBC he was “proud to be a dad.”
He’s referred to Lauren as “a very special girl” and recently gave her a 5-carat diamond eternity bracelet as a token of his affection.
Baby Cowell is reportedly arriving in February.
