How did Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman meet?

Ironically, Lauren was introduced to Simon in Barbados by her husband at the time, Andrew Silverman, in 2006.

Real estate tycoon, Andrew Silverman, was quite a good friend of Simon’s in the early 2000s, and the married Silverman couple even holidayed with him on numerous occasions.

What happened next?

Even after meeting Lauren for the first time, Simon continued to date other women such as journalist Terri Seymour.

He even branched out further with an engagement to American Idol makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy in 2010, but this was later called off with what Simon described as a ‘big mistake’. He reportedly left Hussainy a multimillion-dollar mansion in Beverly Hills.

After this string of dating experiences, Simon finally settled to seeing Lauren Silverman in secret in a time in which she was still married to Andrew Silverman.

It was only when she became pregnant with Simon’s baby in 2013 that the secret couple were made to confess their relationship. Following this, the Silverman couple filed for a divorce, paving way for Lauren’s new life with Simon Cowell.

Since their relationship was brought into the public eye along with their son, Eric, Simon finally decided to get down on one knee in 2021.

Reportedly, Simon and Lauren were holidaying in Barbados when he proposed on Christmas Eve on the beach, with both Eric and Lauren’s older son, Adam, being present during this special time. Since Lauren said ‘yes’, wedding bells will be ringing in the near future!

Who is Lauren Silverman?

As the daughter of real estate developers Carole Eisenberg and Steven Davis, Lauren is an American socialite. Whilst attending countless social gatherings, Lauren had managed to keep her life fairly private until the affair was exposed.

Despite this, this socialite was captured in paparazzi shots with notable women such as actress Sofia Vergara, singer Nicole Scherzinger, and model Heidi Klum in the past, showing her taste for the celebrity lifestyle.

Simon Cowell and Andrew Silverman

Despite the famous adultery scandal causing devastation to the Silverman household, it is impressive that Simon has managed to keep on relatively good terms with Lauren’s ex-husband, Andrew.

After cheating with his wife and causing her to get pregnant, Simon has allegedly made amends with the then-livid Andrew.

At first, when Lauren was found to be 10 weeks pregnant, Simon and Andrew’s friendship had soured to the point where Andrew stopped Simon from being in the same room as his son, Adam, during New York meetings.

Since then, Simon has admitted to his mistakes, commenting that he wasn’t proud of the unideal circumstances. It is said that the two have since made up for the sake of Andrew and Lauren’s son, Adam.

Following this in 2015, Andrew then remarried to Samantha Zimmerman, and it appears that this fresh couple will be holidaying with Simon and Lauren as well as the two children in the future. Whilst this may seem like a bizarre family set-up, it seems to be working cordially for these adults!

What are the couple’s height and age differences?

Simon is 62, having been born in 1959. Born in July 1977, Lauren is 44 years old, making her 18 years younger than her husband-to-be. However, the larger-than-average age difference doesn’t appear to have held this couple back.

Furthermore, Simon is 5”7’, making him smaller than the average male height. Despite this, Lauren appears to be a similar height to Simon whilst wearing high heels in photographs, making her a few inches shorter than him naturally.

Conclusion

Lauren also supported Simon after an electric bike accident in 2020, in which he broke his back and had to go through a 5-hour period of surgery. Lockdown was clearly a test for everyone – including Lauren and Simon.

Whilst some couples were driven apart in the pandemic, realizing their incompatibility to live together, it appears that Simon and Lauren proved to enjoy each other’s company, creating a loving and supportive environment. Being closer than ever, the romance is certainly still alive for this engaged couple.
