Lauren Silverman, the wife of one of X Factor judge Simon Cowell‘s best friends and the woman who is said to be 10 weeks pregnant with Cowell’s baby, is just “a nice girl from Miami Beach!”
So says her mom, Aventura realtor Carole Saland, who raised Silverman in South Florida with ex-husband Steven Davis, a Hallandale retiree.
Raven-haired hottie Silverman, 36, wife of millionaire New York developer Andrew Silverman, was caught in the eye of a tabloid storm this week when word leaked she was expecting a child from Cowell, a judge on the original American Idol.
Awkward: The Silvermans and Cowell all used to be thistight!
“She doesn’t deserve all of this bad publicity,” Saland told Us Weekly while visiting her daughter on Long Island. “Things happen in life. (We are) living in 2013. Her marriage was not a marriage made in heaven and life goes on, people go on.”
Silverman is going through a divorce, but husband Andrew cited adultery as his reason to file, and named Cowell in the divorce papers.
