It will hardly be more romantic, and Simon Cowell took the opportunity to get on his knees and free for his girlfriend of several years, 44-year-old Lauren Silverman.
The 62-year-old America’s Got Talent judge secured his sweetheart’s “yes” during a Christmas holiday on the Caribbean island, writes the magazine People.
Both the couple’s joint son, Eric, and Silverman’s eldest son, Adam, attended the courtship.
However, the engagement does not come as a surprise to the couple’s friends.
Sources tell People that both Cowell and his upcoming bride are “super happy.”
“They’ve been together for a long time now, and they adore each other, so it’s not a big surprise for their closest friends,” it reads.
The two met back in 2004, but at the time, Lauren Silverman was married to Cowell’s good friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. He is also the father of her eldest son.[display-posts orderby="rand"]

It was only when she became pregnant with Cowell in 2013 that it came to an actual breakup and divorce.
Although Cowell has previously stated that he did not want children because of the responsibilities that come with it, he soon after the birth of his son acknowledged that fatherhood had a softer side to him.
In May 2021, he told about it in The Kelly Clarkson Show.
“From the moment I saw the scan, I was sold. Now I can not imagine my life without him at all. He is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I adore him. “
