X Factor Creator Simon Cowell gets ready to become a father

Simon and Lauren

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman prepare for parenthood by taking a relaxing holiday in the sunshine.

Well it has certainly been a big year for Simon Cowell, as the big name behind ITV’s X Factor we are sure he took great pleasure in the success of this latest series as we all watched with baited breath as hundreds of thousands of new hopefuls queued for hours during the X Factor auditions in cities across the country, as their dreams were cruelly dashed by the judges, as they rejoiced getting through each stage, boot camp, the judges houses and finally the live shows.  As the weeks passed by and one by one the acts were booted off the show until the amazing live final between Sam Bailed and  Nicholas McDonald and finally Sam was crowned the winner of X Factor 2014!

However this was not the only thing Simon Cowell had to concentrate on this year and he may have even been somewhat distracted from his X Factor duties instead learning how to become the doting boyfriend to pregnant partner Lauren Silverman. News of Silverman’s pregnancy broke in spring 2013 and we have been following the exciting developments ever since. All eyes were on notorious ladies’ man Simon to see how he would cope with this new huge responsibility, and we think it is fair to say he has coped very admirably sticking by his lady despite tricky circumstances and being there for her every step of the way. Cowells fellow celebrity friends such as Amanda Holden have commented on what a great Dad they think he will make and he seemed genuinely pleased and excited by the prospect of fatherhood.

Now in the final weeks of her pregnancy Lauren Silverman is taking one final deserved break before the trials, tribulations and of course joys of motherhood begin. The 36 year old looked happy, health and relaxed when snaps of her aboard Cowells multi million pound luxury yacht were taken earlier this month.

It is not yet certain where Silverman will give birth as Cowell has started work on his other massive ITV project Britain’s Got Talent which has seen him tied up in London since September last year. It has been reported the couple have been looking at hospitals in the UK’s capital near west London where Cowells is based. However it may be that the pair decide to have the baby in the big apple instead as this is where Silverman’s mother lives and she wants to be there on hand to help and support her daughter after the child has been born. Both have friends and family in both the UK and America so it will surely be a tough decision to make. Silverman’s mother Carole Saland however is keen to have her daughter nearby and as the due date approaches it seems that Silverman is swaying that way as well. Simons busy work schedule means that he might not be able to give Silverman all the support and attention she might like in the tough first few weeks where her mother can be there at her beck and call to held her through.

However it didn’t seem like decisions like these was going to get in the way of their holiday. The pair relaxed with friends with Lauren looking graceful in a modest white swimsuit while Simon donned his favourite board shorts. The couple soaked up the sun and seemed to be enjoying the peace and quiet and they bobbed up and down off the coast of sunny Barbados. Clearly they are aware that sleepless nights are in store right around the corner!
