Lauren Silverman: Simon Cowell Finally Addresses Affair

By: Kimberly Ripley - April 8, 2014

Lauren Silverman’s baby daddy Simon Cowell is just now talking publicly about their affair that not only tore apart Lauren and Andrew Silverman’s marriage, but also resulted in the birth of Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell’s son Eric. He is just now discussing the origins of their relationship.

Cowell says he regrets betraying Andrew Silverman, who was also his close friend.

“But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kinda go, ‘This is what happened from it.’ In this situation you are not going to come out of this well because of the circumstances,” he said during a recent interview.

“It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened. You have to deal with it and man up to it. You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism. All I can say is, my advice to you is if it happens to you, you just have to deal with it a day at a time and own up to your responsibilities,” he added.

Eric Cowell was born on Valentine’s Day of this year and is named after Cowell’s father. He is Simon Cowell’s first child and the second for Lauren Silverman. She has a 7-year-old son with Andrew Silverman.

It definitely sounds like Silverman and Cowell are very compatible.

“The great thing about Lauren is she loves what I do, so she sits in if I am watching Britain’s Got Talent for example, and she has got a good opinion,” Cowell says. “And I seem to have got my mojo back again.”

Fans speculate about whether Eric will be Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman’s only child together.

I wouldn’t rule anything out,” he says. “From here on in I am not predicting anything. The important thing this year is we have fun with what we are doing.”

And what about making an honest woman of Lauren Silverman?

“Wait and see,” he teases.

Do you think Simon Cowell will ever tie the knot with Lauren Silverman or will she forever be the mistress–part of the former marriage that he helped wreck?

    Whatever you do simon, tare care of the child, but don’t marry the HO, lauren. She’s after your millions. She fooled andrew the way she is foolng you now. Be on your guard with this gold digger. Find someone single with no baggage. Don’t fool around with married women.

    It’s not like Cowell that wants to have long lasting relationship with a women. Maybe the truth is Lauren Silverman gave him too much pressure to make such a decision! Lauren Silverman in fact has another son thats about 8 years old now. She should care more about him.
