The couple plan to walk down the aisle after getting engaged on Christmas Eve on one of the paradise beaches of Barbados, where they first met. The “America’s Got Talent” judge is officially engaged to Silverman after more than 17 years together and welcoming their son Eric in February 2014.
Simon surprised Lauren with a romantic marriage proposal as they walked along the island beach together on a family vacation. A very special moment where their son Eric, 7, and Silverman’s eldest son Adam, 16, were present. Close friends and family know how “much they adore each other” and have already commented that right now everyone in the family is “super happy.”
The world-renowned talent scout realized during times of pandemic and confinement how “totally in love” he was with his girlfriend. Being locked up for a long time, Simon says, was the moment he realized if he “really enjoyed her company.” The romance was as alive as the first day. The pandemic made him realize how much he loved her, and with the onset of this year, he has taken the plunge and proposed to her.
Already when the former “American Idol” judge received the Hollywood star of fame in 2018 he dedicated some beautiful words to his partner: “Lauren, you’ve been my rock for the past few years, put up with everything I put up with”. However, the beginning of the romance was complicated. She was the wife of one of Simon’s best friends when they fell in love and shortly after her pregnancy became public, her husband filed for divorce.
Until then Simon Cowell was considered one of Britain’s “golden bachelors”. He once said that “marriage is boring” and that he preferred “being alone.” Everything changed when Lauren appeared in his life and gave Simon that “X Factor” he was looking for deep down and with whom he couldn’t be happier.
