Is Simon Cowell married and does he have children?
Simon Cowell proposed to his long term girlfriend Lauren Silverman at the end of last year. Lauren gave birth to their son Eric – who is now seven, born on Valentine’s Day in 2014.
Lauren Silverman is an American socialite who has kept her life largely private, with no social media accounts either.
Simon Cowell’s wife to be and lavish wedding plans
Simon Cowell’s plans to marry Lauren Silverman are well underway after he popped the question back in December.
While the couple spend much of their time in the US, OK Magazine reveals that they’re hoping to tie the knot here on British soil and we can expect a lavish day full of A-list stars,
A source told OK: “They want a UK wedding. Simon is only getting married once and he wants to have a really wonderful day.
“And Lauren has waited for this for a long time. She wants a beautiful, lavish event with all of the people who have been good to them throughout the years.”
The guest list is yet to be finalised, but Simon, 62, and Lauren, 44, want a “big star-studded event”. And as expected Simon is planning a raucous stag do in Las Vegas ahead of his big day.
Simon’s dramatic weight loss
Simon has reportedly lost four stone in weight, and told The Sun that his slimmed-down physique is down to “healthy eating and drinking tonnes of water.”
Simon also credited his weight loss to cycling on his e-bikes – which he has 15 of in his Californian mansion.
He admits he used to binge on sausage rolls, hamburgers and his favourite jam tarts made by his personal chefs.
However, since ditching his unhealthy lifestyle he reveals he has managed to drop four waist sizes.
Simon Cowell’s botox ‘horror film’ disaster
Simon Cowell is just as well known for his cosmetic surgery choices as he is for his TV shows.
The famously harsh X Factor judge has vowed to never have Botox again after being left looking like “something out of a horror film” from some botched jobs.
He told The Sun: “There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day and didn’t recognise it as me first of all.
“Eric (his son) was in hysterics. Enough was enough. There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero.”
He was recently spotted looking totally different as he rocked his natural looks. His new look came as the telly star revealed he will be stepping back from fillers as it left him looking like “something out of a horror film”.
