Simon Cowell’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to a baby boy on Friday in New York.
Silverman gave birth to a baby boy, who weighs in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces, at Lenox Hill hospital, reports TMZ. This is the second baby for Silverman and the first for Cowell.
As previously reported, the 36-year-old Silverman went into labor a week early on Friday morning, while Cowell was overseas in London.
As soon as the news reached him, Cowell hopped onto a plane and it was reported that since Silverman was still in early states of labor, her pregnancy could be delayed just long enough for the new dad-to-be to get to the hospital.
A source told E! News of mood. “Everyone’s so excited he’ll be a Valentine’s baby.” Previously the site had noted the 54-year-old had been ready for news on Silverman.
“He has had a plane on standby for a week,” the source noted.
TMZ notes that there hasn’t been any announcement on a name for the new baby boy just yet, but they supposedly have one already picked out.
