Simon Cowell may be leaving FOX to return to the U.K.’s “The X Factor,” but he might want to get back to the States as soon as possible.
TMZ reports that Cowell’s girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, is in labor at a hospital in New York, with the reality TV judge set to board a plane from London.
The couple, who made headlines last year after her pregnancy with their child was reported while she was still married to Andrew Silverman.
The baby, a boy, will be the first child for Cowell, while Lauren shares a son with her ex-husband. FOX returned that “The X Factor” would not return for a fourth season after dismal ratings last fall.
The reason given was that Cowell was planning to return to the U.K. version of the series and that “there is no ‘X Factor’ without Simon Cowell.”
