If they’re not denying it…that means it’s definitely true, right? Both Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman addressed the news that they’re expecting a child, despite the fact that she’s still married to Simon’s friend Andrew Silverman.
At an X-Factor TCA Panel on Thursday, Simon was congratulated on the baby news. “Am I missing something?” he asked, making light of the subject before getting on a serious note. “Unfortunately, I have to keep this, for the moment, private. It’s just one of those things. But thank you very much anyway.”
Later, Simon was asked about the pregnancy again, and explained himself in greater detail. “I would love to [talk], but I have to respect a lot of people’s feelings right now,” he explained. “There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.”
One of those people is Andrew and Lauren’s 7-year-old son, Adam. In a statement, Lauren asked for privacy while her family figured this whole situation out. “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son,” she said. “I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.”
Meanwhile, Andrew also requested privacy, with his focus also being on the 7-year-old. The Real Estate mogul filed for divorce from Lauren, citing adultery, and listing Simon as a co-respondent. Check out the video below for all the pregnancy/divorce details we know so far:
