Adam, Lauren's first son with Andrew Silverman, was born in 2006. After the parents' divorce, Adam was left with the dad to continue his studies in a private school. However, both Lauren and Andrew Silverman has joint custody of their son, and she visits him often.

Lauren's second son was born on February 14, 2014, in New York. He is the first son of Simon Cowell, the boyfriend of his mother. The news of Lauren’s pregnancy came as a shock to many, as Lauren was still married. However, Simon took the responsibility as a father.
As the only child to Simon, Eric is the sole heir of Britain got talent judge and entrepreneur. In an interview in 2019, Cowell didn't have anything to do with children. He claimed that he couldn't withstand kids drawing his wall and all kid's stuff. However, the narrative changed later when he became a loving and caring father to Eric.
When Did They Have Their Child, Eric?
Eric was born on Valentine's Day 2014. The baby was conceived when Lauren Silverman was still married to Andrew. However, Simon even denied his affair with Lauren all along. Few months before Lauren conceived Eric, Simon instructed his US Attorney, Marty Singer, to summon an America celebrity blogger refuting the affair.
However, some of the Simon exes didn't take the news politely, although some congratulated him. For instance, Mezhgan Hussainy said she was excited at the story of Simon's child. On the contrary, Sinitta cried on learning that Simon would be a dad. She wanted to be his child's mother. Terri Seymour was shocked by the news though she gave the kid her blessings.
Even Simon's mother, Julie, was happy for his son's kid. Lauren's stepmother, Rosy Davis, was also satisfied with the news.
Marty Singer wrote: 'Any implication or statement that my client is engaged in adultery and has allegedly broken up the marriage of Mr. Silverman is not only false but reckless. My client's relationship with Lauren Silverman has become more serious such that she is now getting a divorce so that she and Simon can be together, is false and defamatory.'
However, even after that denial, Lauren's pregnancy news was all over social media. What a shame! Lauren had a high spirit whatsoever. On her first public appearance after pregnancy news, she kept calm and smiley.
Later on, Lauren issued an official statement about divorce rumors with her husband, Andrew. She stated that she was committed to solving their matters with her husband for their son's sake. She wanted some space and discretion during the whole process.
In an interview, Cowell stated he could not decide on the chances of having other kids. He added, "Would I like more babies? I don't make that decision. As you know, these things happen."
Are Simon And Lauren Married?
Lauren is Simon's girlfriend up to date. After her pregnancy with Cowell got revealed, her husband filed a divorce. Simon's name was in the divorce papers, which Andrew filled on the grounds of adultery. He also termed it a cruel and heartless treatment from Lauren.
Simon's close friends have disclosed that he has no intention of marrying Lauren yet. However, Simon has taken all the responsibility of raising his son, where they still live together. Some people term Simon as a womanizer who gets every woman he wants and Lauren was no exception.
Even though Simon is not married, it seems he found a partner in Lauren as he has been with her since 2012. Simon has been faithful all through. But why is Cowell not married yet? In a past interview, Simon had ruled that relationships are boring. He added, 'Being on my own is the best thing in the world. It's like breathing in oxygen - I can switch off then.'
From being a socialite to stepping and dining with prominent people, Lauren's life is full of determination and hard work. Some have called her a gold digger and insensitive person, but that did not prevent her from achieving her life goal. As much as people blamed her for cheating on her husband, she also endured her hubby's lack of concern and frequented journeys.
So, she found comfort in Simon's arms. Nonetheless, Lauren is a loving and great mom to her kids. She even tried to have custody of her first son, which was granted jointly with her ex-husband. All the same, all Simon stated earlier, it wasn't his intention to hurt anyone, but things happen. Hopefully, his longtime friend will forgive him for snatching his wife. He's a self-declared ladies' man; therefore, it wasn't a big deal for him.
