Photos of Simon Cowell Kissing Lauren Silverman Back in 2012!

We know that Simon Cowell got his friend Andrew Silverman’s wife, Lauren, pregnant. And we know that Simon, Andrew and Lauren have been friends for years. But what we don’t know is how long Simon and Lauren have been romantically involved.

TMZ posted photos on August 2 that appear to show Simon and Lauren kissing while on a yacht together in August of 2012. It’s worth noting that you can’t actually see their lips touch — there’s a pole in the way — but it’s clear that their faces are very close together. Oh, and did we mention that Lauren’s husband was on board the same boat at the time? Yeah. Awkward. See the photos here.

Sources close to Lauren’s estranged husband tell TMZ that Andrew was “shocked” when his saw the kissing photos earlier this morning. Apparently, the NYC real estate mogul had no idea that Lauren and Simon had been hooking up his back for that long.

Lauren is reportedly 10 weeks pregnant with Simon’s child. She and Andrew, who have a 7-year-old son, are in the process of getting a divorce. Her only statement about the ordeal comes through her lawyers: "I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son."

Simon, too, has stayed mum about everything, saying only, "Unfortunately, I have to keep this for the moment private. It's just one of those things."
