I never thought I’d say this -- Simon Cowell is so sweet! I know, right? But it’s true. The apparently smitten dad-to-be planned and hosted a baby shower for his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman on Sunday.
They may be expecting a son, but the party was totally girly. Cowell organized an English themed tea party at his Beverly Hills home. The ladies set up in the back garden and noshed on mini sandwiches, cakes, and tea (wine and champagne for those who inclined to indulge).
Not only that -- but the proud papa didn’t even stay to enjoy the festivities. He helped set it up and then skedaddled before the guests arrived. Guests that included two of his ex-girlfriends -- Mezhgan Hussainy and Terri Seymour. Because apparently Simon’s just such a nice guy that exes can be friends after the breakup. Go figure.
A source said Silverman made out like a bandit and proclaimed that her little boy “already [has] a wardrobe to rival any A-lister.” The source said there were “piles of beautiful newborn clothes -- plenty of hats, super-soft onesies ... someone had bought him a tiny pair of shoes, too.”
Mama seemed happy and content, with “her hand on her tummy a lot ... she kept rubbing it, and she looked really proud.”
Simon came home just before the party ended, and one onlooker remarked that he beamed. “They seem to really be in love,” said the source. “I’ve never seen him like that before.”
Do you think impending fatherhood has softened the notoriously brusque Brit?
