Cowell ‘loved up’ in Barbados

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman are soaking up the sun this holiday season.

The X Factor boss, who welcomed his first son, Eric, with the American socialite earlier this year, recently jet to the Caribbean island, according to MailOnline.

Photos of the couple published by the outlet show Simon and Lauren strolling along the beach while holding hands.

The couple will reportedly be joined by the host of X Factor spin-off The Xtra Factor, Sarah-Jane Crawford, and her boyfriend Ross Harland, according to UK newspaper The Sun.

The English TV and radio presenter is said to be “really excited and honoured” by the invitation.

“While the entire X Factor gang get on well, she received an invite ahead of Dermot O’Leary and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini so she has to be in his good books,” a source told the outlet.

“She’ll certainly be expecting to keep her Xtra Factor role for next year’s series — if the holiday goes smoothly that is.”

It’s said to be a star-studded affair, with Rihanna, who is from the island, as well as Sir Philip Green spending time in the area during the holidays.

Lauren and Simon, who welcomed baby Eric on Valentine’s Day, are meanwhile planning to expand their family in the future, according to the socialite.

“We’ll definitely have more children,” Lauren told UK newspaper The Mirror back in May, gushing that Simon is an “amazing” dad.

“I would like one more, I think it will be a girl, Simon wants a girl very badly,” she added.

Simon has also spoken about the joys of being a father, echoing Lauren’s sentiments about feeling “blessed” Eric is healthy.

Asked if he had realised how fortunate his family is, he recently told British magazine Hello!: “Of course. You feel blessed and luckily he's in good health. It did put things into a different perspective."
