Hear that? It’s the sound of wedding bells for Simon Cowell and his pregnant, soon-to-be bride Lauren Silverman. The “X Factor” judge is so committed to welcoming his first baby, on the way next year, he’s preparing to propose any moment.
“Simon has an engagement ring,” a source revealed to People magazine, “but is being secretive about the proposal.”
Part of those plans include a getaway trip to the tropics in the coming weeks.
“Simon is flying to the Caribbean for the Christmas holiday,” the source continued. “Lauren will join him for parts of the holiday trip. Simon could be planning a special holiday proposal. It seems he will definitely propose.”
The music mogul has been trying—and failing—to keep this relationship out of the press, but clearly that’s not going to happen. He admitted to Hollyscoop that being secretive about it all is more exhausting than just discussing it, so he has pretty much given up.
“I think we have kept it really private,” Simon sarcastically told us at the Jaguar F-Type Coupe Event at Raleigh Studios in LA, playfully rolling his eyes.
Then he got slightly more serious and said, “There is nothing you can do about it. I’m excited.”
