    Unless you live under a rock, you probably know by now that Simon Cowell is expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman!

    The X Factor judge and dad-to-be and his New York socialite gal (who's still technically married to her real estate mogul husband Andrew Silverman) are about 10 weeks pregnant together. The 53-year-old music exec and Silverman reportedly "became close" as her marriage "deteriorated."

    While we waiting for baby Cowell to arrive, let's take a look past at Cowell's other women and past romantic relationships.

    2008: Cowell admitted to having an affair with Dannii Minogue in a 2012 interview. "I had a crush on her. It was Dannii's hair, the sexy clothes, and the t--s," he reportedly said. "I was like a schoolboy. She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine. It was genuine love." The twosome allegedly got together right after his split from Seymour. It was also rumored that Cowell pursued his X Factor mate Cheryl Cole during their time on the show together.

    February 2010: Cowell became sort of engaged to his American Idol makeup artist girlfriend Mezhgan Hussainy. However, the two broke off their engagement in January 2012 after two years together.

    September 2012: Cowell was snapped on a dinner date with Carmen Electra at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. Despite getting touchy-feely at dinner, Electra said the duo were "just friends."

    July 25, 2013: Just a few days before his baby news broke, Cowell was snapped with a mystery woman sitting on his lap as the two left London restaurant River Café. The duo seemed quite cozy while driving off together.
