Newly divorced socialite Lauren Silverman has stated she wants to marry X Factor Boss, Simon Cowell.

"I am so in love with Simon. I want to be with him. I want to marry him," Lauren reportedly stated.

Meanwhile, Cowell is also looking forward to becoming a father.

"Lauren and Simon are together and they are working everything out as best they can. Simon is happy and excited and in a great place. He is supportive of Lauren and looking forward to becoming a dad," a source close to Cowell stated.

Lauren was divorced by her husband, real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman, who named 53-year-old Cowell in his at-fault divorce filing. She is already mother to one child -- seven-year-old Adam Silverman. Silverman filed for an at-fault divorce in a Manhattan court, naming his wife and Cowell as ffending parties. This deal is reportedly the result of a private meeting between Cowell and Silverman at the Francis S Gabreski Airport in The Hamptons. Cowell apparently financed this divorce to the tune of £10m.

He has also offered child support to the tune of £3m-a-year, which would continue till the baby reaches the legal age of adulthood in America. And another source told US Weekly the relationship between Cowell and Lauren is nearly four years old.

"Lauren has loved Simon forever. And they started having an affair four years ago. The relationship began as a fling, but the baby - due in February - changed everything. Simon and Lauren are together. They talk 100 times a day."
