Simon Cowell is now officially a dad … as his 36-year old girlfriend Lauren Silverman has given birth to his first child … a boy.
Silverman went into labor on Friday morning and delivered the baby at Lenox Hill Hospital at around 5:45 PM EST. He reportedly weighs a healthy 6 pounds, 7 ounces.
Cowell, 54, was by her side during the delivery. He flew in from London after he heard that the baby was coming.
Simon Cowell infamously impregnated Laura Silverman last year when she was still married to his friend Andrew, which resulted in a nasty break up that involved Andrew filing divorce papers citing adultery and naming the X Factor creator a co-respondent. The case was later settled without drama for the sake of Andrew and Laura’s 8-year old son.
