Today we found out that Simon Cowell is going to be a dad. Hold your laughter, please. The “X-Factor” head honcho is expecting his first child with his friend’s wife! The lucky lady’s name is Lauren Silverman.
Of course, Lauren isn’t Simon’s first high-profile relationship. The following are all of Simon’s long-term lovers. If we included all his flings and weeklong affairs, our hands would cramp from excessive typing, so we've limited it to serious relationships or serious affairs.
Jackie St. Clair: Simon dated the British socialite/model Jackie St. Clair back in the '70s and like most of his exes, they still hang out and he takes her on vacations.
Sinitta: Simon Cowell dated British-American recording artist Sinitta back in 1984 when he was 25 and she was just 16. Everyone thinks she was the “one that got away.” They are still friends to this day, even though she cheated on him.
Alicia Douvall: The former “model” Alicia Douvall said she had a six-month affair with Simon in 2001, before he “tired of her.” Her words.
Terri Seymour: Simon dated the British TV host from about 2001 to 2008, making it one of his longest relationships ever. She dumped him and yep, you guessed it, they are still friends.
Jasmine Lennard: The UK reality star supposedly had an affair with Simon in 2006 when he was dating Terri Seymour. Apparently Simon has an injunction placed on her, so she would shut up.
Dannii Minogue: Simon was sleeping with Dannii while she was an "X Factor" judge with him, according to a salacious autobiography about the television personality that came out last year.
Mezhgan Hussainy: After dating for a few months, Simon proposed to the makeup artist in 2010. Then about a year later, they quietly broke up.
Carmen Electra: Simon and Carmen reportedly went on maybe one or two dates last year.
Lauren Silverman: Simon has been linked to Lauren since 2012 and now she’s carrying his baby.
