The woman at the center of the Simon Cowell baby daddy scandal is going about her business as usual even though she’s become the object of the paparazzi overnight.
Lauren Silverman, who is in the middle of a nasty divorce from real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman, reportedly is 10 weeks pregnant with The X Factor judge’s baby. Andrew and Simon used to be best friends. Now — we assume — they aren’t anymore.
The 36-year-old socialite, who was photographed in Bridgehampton, New York, wore a body-hugging black dress that showed off her baby bump.
Since the scandal broke, Simon and his reps have been unusually silent. The New York Daily News claims the 53-year-old was blindsided by the news and felt “tricked” by his secret lover.
“He assumed she was using birth control,” a source close to Cowell told the newspaper.
