Us Weekly reports that the X Factor judge, 54, and his pregnant baby mama Lauren Silverman, 36, might be heading for the altar their baby is born.
As one source said he has even bought an engagement ring.
“Simon’s mad about her,” a source told the publication. “But I think he’ll wait until after she gives birth.”
Hints at a possible marriage were dropped by Cowell in a September interview with Ryan Seacrest.
“Let’s put it this way, I wouldn’t expect her to be a single mother,” he said at the time.
As for a name for the little one, who is expected to arrive in February 2014, the pair has reportedly already picked one.
“Lauren decided on it last night,” he told Us Weekly on Nov. 4.
This is Cowell’s first child and the second for Lauren who also has a 7-year-old son, Adam, with ex-husband Andrew Silverman.
