Simon Cowell is a new dad. The TV star and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, have welcomed their first baby together. E! confined their baby boy was born Friday, and weighed in at a healthy six pounds, seven ounces.
This is the first child for 54-year-old Cowell, a former “American Idol” and “The X Factor” judge. Silverman, 37, also has another son from a previous relationship with ex-husband Andrew Silverman.
The socialite faced a media firestorm last year when she became pregnant with Cowell’s child while still married to her spouse. The Silvermans finalized their divorce in December.
