Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman cozy up after enjoying a romantic dinner date at Giorgio Baldi
Simon Cowell and his longtime girlfriend Lauren Silverman put on a loving display after enjoying a date night in Santa Monica.
The 61-year-old America’s Got Talent judge and his socialite partner of eight years, 43, were seen exiting celeb-favorite beachside haunt Giorgio Baldi arm in arm.
Though their relationship had controversial beginnings, the pair continued to show they were the picture of strength as they left with a to-go bag in hand.

Lauren seemed to help hoist him up as he continues to recover after breaking his back on an electric bike accident last summer.

And the blunt Brit looked keen for some quality time with his lady, as he has been back filming the 16th season of AGT after taking a mid-season hiatus to get back surgery last summer.
Though the seemingly painful surgery required the insertion of a metal rod and multiple fusions, he told People last month that breaking his back ‘wasn’t that bad.’
‘I’ve got to be honest with you, it wasn’t that bad actually. I mean it wasn’t great for 3-4 weeks but after that you get through it. I had to do so much exercise now. I actually feel better than I did before the accident,’ he told the publication.

He has been spotted on set in recent weeks alongside show host Terry Crews and fellow panelists Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and newcomer Sofia Vergara (who is back for her second season) ahead of the show’s June 1 premiere.
And through the ups and the downs Lauren has been by his side. They went public with their relationship in 2013 after the then-married brunette got pregnant, and their son Eric was born in 2014.
The pair were first introduced in 2006 by her then-husband Andrew Silverman — who filed for divorce afterwards — later mandating in filed papers that Cowell had to stay away from the former pair’s son Adam or face a $50K fee. That lasted until 2015.
Speaking about the relationship’s rocky start to The Mirror he said: ‘It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened.’
The blended family (minus Andrew) came together over Easter as they posed for some spring-related photos along with Simon’s ex Terri Seymour, her new partner Clark Mallon and their daughter Coco, and both of Lauren’s kids Adam and Eric.
