X Factor boss Simon Cowell and his pregnant lover Lauren have been spotted together for the first time since her divorce. Cowell was dressed in white, sporting a wide grin, while Lauren wore a white see-through beach dress. She completed the outfit with a straw trilby hat and held her flip-flops in her hand. The couple were strolling along a beach in the south of France.

The 36-year-old Lauren was also wearing the $16,000, five-carat diamond eternity bracelet that was a gift from Cowell.

Recently, Cowell opened up about life with Lauren at the One Direction movie premiere in London. "Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. I'm proud to be a dad...It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it," Cowell said.

"She (Lauren)'s a very special girl."

Lauren, who is believed to be around 12 weeks pregnant, 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.

The New York socialite was reportedly very emotional about her reunion with Cowell. The pair had not seen each other for weeks.

The 53-year-old Cowell has also offered child support to the tune of £3m-a-year, which would continue until the baby reaches the legal age of adulthood in America. 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."

Andrew Silverman has stated that he can never forgive his once close friend Cowell.

"I'm not in that place right now. I don't know. I'm taking every day at a time, not weeks, not months. It's been a difficult situation but I think I'm doing the best that I can with the cards that I have been dealt," Silverman said.
