Simon Cowell gets ‘engaged’ to longtime girlfriend Lauren Silverman after ‘secret proposal in Barbados’
Simon Cowell has gotten engaged to his longtime girlfriend of 13 years Lauren Silverman, according to reports.
The 62 year old music mogul was said to have proposed to the mother of his son during a romantic sun-soaked holiday to Barbados.
The X Factor judge got down on one knee and asked mum-of-two Lauren, 44, to finally make things official, reports have claimed, despite previously stating he didn’t believe in marriage.
His girlfriend was reportedly “stunned” by the proposal and said yes without hesitation.
The couple first started dating in 2013, and have built a happy family together with now-seven year old son Eric.
A source told The Sun: “Simon and Lauren are ridiculously, nauseatingly in love.
“Incredibly, lockdown brought them closer than ever.
“Lauren was absolutely stunned and never in a million years expected Simon to pop the question.
“She burst into tears – happy tears – and obviously said ‘yes’ straight away.”
The insider reportedly told the publication that Simon made the decision to pop the question because Lauren had been his “rock” throughout the pandemic as well as after he suffered a back injury in 2020.
Simon was said to know he needed to “put a ring on it” because Lauren is the “woman of his dreams”.
A spokesperson reportedly confirmed the news to The Sun. OK! has contacted Simon's representatives for comment.
Simon and Lauren first met because the former was good friends with her husband Andrew Silverman.
Lauren split from Andrew and divorced him before having Simon’s child.
She also shares son Adam Silverman with Andrew.
