“They are both super happy,” a source told People magazine. “They’ve been together a long time now and adore each other so it’s not a huge surprise to their close friends.”
Representatives for the former “American Idol” judge confirmed to People the two are engaged.
Cowell met Silverman, who was then-married to real estate mogul Andrew Silverman, in 2004, Page Six reported. Lauren and Andrew ended their 10-year marriage in 2013. (RELATED: Lindsay Lohan Shares Life-Changing News She’s Engaged)
Cowell once said he and Silverman had an affair while she was still married to his close friend, according to the outlet.
“[The affair] is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone,” Simon shared. “It just happened … But then, of course, you have a baby, and you look at the baby and you kinda go, ‘This is what happened from it.'”
Cowell and Silverman welcomed a son into the world in 2014. Silverman also has a son, Adam, from her previous marriage.
