Simon Cowell's baby mama, Lauren Silverman, who is going through nasty divorce to hubby, Andrew, is obsessed with fame and wants to be a celebrity, and is loving all of the attention from the media, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Lauren "has wanted to be a celebrity since she was a teenager. Lauren's mother Carol Saland has been pushing her daughter to be with men that had a lot of money, and were famous. In Carol's eyes, Lauren's husband, Andrew, wasn't good enough for her daughter, even though he had a lot of money," a source told Radar.
"When Lauren told her mom she met Simon Cowell while vacationing, she was thrilled. Lauren loves all of the attention from the press she has been getting since it was revealed she is carrying Simon's baby. She wants to be a celebrity and doesn't plan on giving up the spotlight anytime soon."
53-year-old Cowell remains super close to many of his ex-girlfriends, including pop star Sinitta, Jackie St. Clair and Terri Seymour — all of whom were said to have been “worried” about his relationship with the New York socialite who is now carrying the music mogul's lovechild.
Though Cowell has no plans of marrying the attractive brunette, as a source revealed to Radar, the insider noted “there is simply no question that Simon will take responsibility for the child and make sure the baby is taken care of.”
