Lauren Silverman, Simon Cowell, and their baby boy, Eric, were all asleep in their London home during the wee hours of Friday morning when burglars broke in.

The Guardian reports that Metropolitan police responded to a call for a burglary in progress. By the time they arrived at Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman's home, the suspects were gone.
Missing in the incident are cash belonging to both parties and jewelry belonging to Lauren Silverman.
This isn't the first time Simon Cowell has been the victim of a burglary either. Back in 2011, this same home was burglarized and a woman was found hiding inside a walk-in closet. She was armed with a brick when discovered.
"She had smashed her way in through the window and it was unclear how long she had been there or what she was doing," a rep for Simon Cowell said at the time.
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman will no doubt be traveling to L.A. with little Eric very soon. Ryan Seacrest said in a recent interview with E! News that all former American Idol judges will return for the final season of the show, set to air in January.
"We will have the former judges back," Seacrest said. "The plan is to have all of them back. They've all considered it and I think are enthusiastic about coming back and saluting the show."
Hopefully Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman hire some extra vigilant security people to guard their home while they're in the U.S.

Can you imagine how frightening it must have been for Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell to learn someone was inside their home while they were sleeping? This scenario could have ended with far more than cash and jewelry lost.
