What Lauren Silverman’s Mom Had to Say About Her Pregnant Daughter’s Sugar Daddy, Simon Cowell

Lauren Silverman And Sugar Daddy Simon CowellWe 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.
