A report in The Sun newspaper today suggests Simon will marry Lauren early next year.
‘SIMON Cowell is secretly planning a wedding in Britain — just months after becoming a dad for the first time.
Simon is desperate for his 87-year-old mum Julie to see him tie the knot with Lauren Silverman.
Lauren has agreed for a traditional church ceremony near Julie’s Sussex home early next year.
The wedding is likely to be intimate, with Louis Walsh, hypnotist Paul McKenna and Top Shop mogul Sir Philip Green the only celebrities on the guest list.
Lauren will hold a blessing in America for her friends.
Last night a source close to Cowell revealed: “Simon’s mum has always dreamt of the day Simon settles down with one woman and he’s determined for her to be a big part of the day.”
And in a tribute to Simon’s late father, the couple are also considering giving their son the middle name Eric.’
