A Valentine surprise for Simon Cowell: Girlfriend goes into labor

Simon Cowell's girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, has gone into labor, and he is headed back to New York from London on a private jet to be there for the birth. According to a Feb. 14 "Breaking Water Report" on TMZ, Silverman has checked into Lenox Hill Hospital in Upper East Side Manhattan, and this is somewhat of a Valentine surprise for Cowell because the baby was not due for about another week and a half.

At the time Cowell's relationship with Lauren Silverman began, she was the wife of his close friend Andrew Silverman. According to NY Daily News, Lauren's ex-husband has been stepping up his game as a father to their 8-year-old son Adam.

The baby has been determined to be a boy, so maybe they will name him Valentino, Val for short. Val Cowell does have quite a ring to it, doesn't it? This is Cowell's first child.

Simon Cowell continues his mega-success with his competition talent shows both in Britain and America.
