Los Angeles: Music mogul Simon Cowell reportedly spent USD 16,000 on a special silver bangle for his pregnant lover Lauren Silverman.

The 53-year-old `X Factor` boss is expecting his first baby with the New York socialite, who is the ex-wife of his former friend Andrew Silverman, reported Us magazine.

"He knew what he wanted. He loves her. Simon plans to be with her," a source said.

Earlier this week Cowell reunited with Lauren, who is said to be approximately 12 weeks pregnant, for the first time since her divorce was finalised last week.

Lauren flew in to Nice airport in the South of France, near where Simon is holidaying on a luxury yacht.

Earlier in the week Simon flew to London for the evening to attend the premiere of his boy band One Direction`s film `This is Us`, where he gushed about Lauren, saying, "I`m proud to be a dad. It`s something I hadn`t thought of before, but now I know, I feel good about it.

"Things are changing in my life right now, for the better. She is a very special girl," he said.
