Extra correspondent Terri Seymour is making her own news these days: she's pregnant! Seymour recently revealed that she and boyfriend Clark Mallon are expecting their first. Seymour is about four months along. Reaction to the news has been positive — even Simon Cowell (good friends with the couple) shared this tweet, "Congratulations @TerriSeymour and Clark. Me and Lauren are very excited for you both. If it's a boy you can call him simon."
It was quite a lovely Valentine's Day for Simon Cowell this year! The X Factor judge became a dad for the very first time when girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to a son, whom they have named Eric. Cowell announced the happy news in a series of Tweets, and shared that baby Eric was named after Cowell's own dad.
Simon Cowell is adjusting to the idea of being a dad, but in a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, the former X-Factor judge made it clear that daddy-duty does not extend to the delivery room. When asked if he planned to be with girlfriend Lauren Silverman during the delivery of their baby (rumored to be a son), Cowell responded with his characteristic frankness, "Are you out of your mind? ... I'll be very close by, but no." Baby will be the first for Cowell but the second for Silverman, who's mom to 7-year-old Adam.
Simon Cowell is no stranger to controversy — his bluntness as a judge on the popular American Idol and X Factor series often landed him in the headlines — and that trait is following him to his personal life. Cowell is expecting his first baby with Lauren Silverman, a relationship that again landed Cowell in the headlines. The latest news, however, is purely happy: the couple are reported to be expecting a son.
