Simon Cowell has arrived in New York, going straight to the Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan’s Upper East Side shortly after 2pm local time.
Simon Cowell proudly announced ‘I’m having a boy’ as he arrived at hospital today where Lauren Silverman is believed to be in the early stages of labour.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge arrived at the Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan’s Upper East Side shortly after 2pm, opting to go through the back entrance.
As Cowell entered the hospital he beamed as he told the Mirror: “She’s doing well. I’m having a boy.”
Speaking to photographers outside the hospital, the X Factor boss said his baby was due ‘any minute’ and that Lauren is ‘doing great’.
Cowell left the UK on private jet this morning, rushing to be by Lauren’s bedside. Friends of the pair stressed Lauren was not yet in full labour but showing “early signs”.
Simon, who attended the first three days of Britain’s Got Talent auditions in London, missed the final day as he jumped on a jet which he had on standby to fly him to New York once Lauren went into labour.
Lauren’s mother Carole Sandland is thought to be traveling from her home in Florida to be on hand when the newborn arrives.
The news has come as a surprise to Simon as Lauren was due to give birth on February 28 in one of Manhattan’s most exclusive hospitals.
Once their baby arrives they will bring him home to the apartment they are renting in Manhattan.
Good luck to Simon and Lauren, we eagerly await the birth of Simon Jnr. We will keep you updated with news as it happens.
