Simon Cowell 'Not Proud' But Says Lauren Silverman Affair 'Just Happened'

Simon Cowell says his relationship with a married Lauren Silverman -- that resulted in his first child -- "just happened."

In an interview with the UK's Mirror, Cowell talks about the affair with Lauren, who was married at the time to friend Andrew Silverman, for the first time.

"It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened. You have to deal with it and man up to it," he says.

"You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism. All I can say is, my advice to you is if it happens to you, you just have to deal with it a day at a time and own up to your responsibilities."

The former 'American Idol' judge says "in a weird way" he "probably needed" to start a family.

"You can start to live a slightly abnormal life and there is no question of doubt I was heading down that path," he says. "Too many late-night phone calls. Too obsessed with things."

"It puts things in perspective having two people in my life who I am responsible for. There were times last year when I would live in two rooms, y'know kitchen and bedroom, in your house."

"It is a weird existence when you live on your own. On the phone all night, blah blah blah. Now the house is full of people. It has become a home rather than a house."

"Everyone said, 'It must be turning your life upside down,' but I love it. The dogs are mad and Lauren is not exactly the most quiet person in the world."

"The great thing about Lauren is she loves what I do, so she sits in if I am watching Britain's Got Talent for example, and she has got a good opinion. I seem to have got my mojo back again," he says.
