Cowell ‘questioned by partner’s dad’

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell was apparently grilled about marriage when he met his girlfriend’s dad.

The music mogul is expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman, a son due early next year. Lauren was married to Simon’s friend when the pair fell for each other, and it seems her father wants to make sure she will be supported when the baby arrives. Simon met Lauren’s father Stephen and stepmother Rosy last week and was subjected to some serious questions about his future.

“Stephen asked Simon about pretty much every aspect of his life. But Simon is nothing if not charming, and they all soon got on like a house on fire,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “He apparently asked Simon if he intends to make an honest woman of Lauren.”

The 54-year-old music mogul recently denied he has bought his girlfriend an engagement ring. There were rumors Simon had splashed out on an expensive band for Lauren, which he was planning to present her with over the Christmas holidays.

“No… I haven’t been ring shopping,” he insisted to Extra.

Simon is believed to felt anxious ahead of meeting Stephen and Rosy for dinner at exclusive eatery Casa Tua in Miami. The meal apparently lasted for four hours, with Simon making a good impression on them both.

“Simon is used to being the boss of everyone but he had some serious nerves before meeting up with Lauren’s father. He really wanted to make a good impression,” a source revealed. “Simon explained that being with Lauren has changed his perspective on relationships, she’s really tamed him.”
