Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman
The Sunday People reports today Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman’s baby will be born in the UK.
The baby, due next February, will be born in a London hospital while Simon records the audition stages of Britain’s Got Talent.
Lauren and Simon made the decision after working out their busy schedules.
Despite Lauren being American and living in New York, the couple decided the best option is for the baby to be born in Britain.
The hospital is likely to be one close to the X Factor boss’s west London mansion.
After giving birth Lauren will move into Simon’s home in Holland Park where the family will live until they return to the States in June once BGT is over.
A source close to Simon said: “He is thrilled that the baby will be born in England. He and Lauren have taken a decision based on what is best for the baby and they’ve chosen the UK.
“Because Simon has to be in the UK for BGT at that time, it is the only option. He wants to be at Lauren’s side when she gives birth and wants to be with his son after he’s born.
“They’re now looking carefully at which hospital they will use.
“It is most likely to be a private hospital so that Lauren can have an obstetrician with her throughout the birth.”
Simon’s £8million mansion is just a stone’s throw from St Mary’s hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to Prince George in the ultra-posh Lindo Wing. Giving birth there can cost up to £10,000.
Another option is Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital, a celebrity favourite.
The third possibility is the Portland, where Victoria Beckham gave birth to her eldest sons Brooklyn and Romeo.
