We know that Simon Cowell, 53, is excited about becoming a dad with his young mistress-turned-girlfriend, 36-year-old Lauren Silverman. But what does Silverman’s mother, Carole Saland, have to say about the fact that her daughter was married, had an affair with her husband’s friend, got pregnant with another man’s baby, and is now dating Cowell? Well, she apparently couldn’t be happier to welcome her daughter’s new older man and their baby into the family.
“We are very happy with everything and we’re all doing well,” Saland told Celebuzz. “Everything is wonderful and we’re very thrilled.” Silverman’s mother also admitted that she was proud of the way Cowell stood up for her daughter in the press after she took most of the heat for their illicit affair. “I can’t blame the media because it’s kind of what I call a juicy story,” Cowell told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “But there was a lot of stuff said about [Silverman], that she trapped me and that she’s a gold digger—absolute nonsense. I mean, she’s a great girl.”
Cowell also confessed his love for his new younger woman in an interview with People magazine, admitting that he’s the happiest he’s been in a while and has no regrets about their affair and the pregnancy. “I love her and I love the fact that I’m having this baby.”
Cowell admitted that, as excited as he is, he has no plans to settle down in one place just because he’s having a baby—he’ll just take his new family with him instead. “The idea of being in the same place every day bores me to tears,” said Cowell. “I have a job where I can travel, and fortunately can accommodate [Silverman and our baby] traveling with me. Every week is different from the last, and I prefer that way of living.” Looks like Silverman will be living the true sugar baby lifestyle.
