Heidi Klum has revealed she wasn’t surprised when Simon Cowell proposed to his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, after an eight-year romance.

She told The Sun: ‘A lot of people said they are surprised he’s finally going to get married but I wasn’t at all, I know them and they’re perfect together.

‘Lauren is wonderful, she’s a strong and clever woman who is very independent — you have to be to be with a strong man like Simon — so they complement each other perfectly.’

Heidi – who is married to Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz – revealed she was very impressed with Lauren’s ‘gorgeous’ engagement ring.

‘Size isn’t everything but it’s beautiful too, as well as being big enough to ice skate on — I’m so pleased for them both. I know they’re going to keep making each other very happy.’

Meanwhile, Simon’s friend Amanda Holden admitted she was ‘shocked’ by the engagement announcement as she didn’t expect him to ever pop the question.

She told Heart FM listeners: ‘I have to say, I’m probably as shocked as Lauren!

‘Simon said he would never get married, and obviously Lauren has been by his side and you now they’ve been through so much together, and I think she’s the one, but I don’t know if she ever thought he would put a ring on it!

‘Whilst Simon never thought he was the marrying type, he’s met the woman of his dreams – and couldn’t be happier. In the words of Beyoncé, it was time to put a ring on it.’

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Simon had popped the question to his girlfriend during a trip to Barbados, before Lauren was spotted out in Malibu the following day flashing her engagement ring.

Despite Simon branding marriage ‘boring’, new reports claim that it was during lockdown that something shifted with Lauren.

The brunette beauty is said to have urged him to commit to their family life and ‘prioritise the present’ instead of spending time with his famous exes.

A friend told The Sun that ‘no one is more shocked about the change in Simon these past few years than Simon’, yet was told by Lauren that she needed a ‘commitment’.

They explained: ‘Not surprisingly, she didn’t appreciate Simon hanging out and holidaying with his harem of exes, particularly Sinitta who was forever lurking in the shadows.

‘Simon was told in no uncertain terms that it was him or his exes — Sinitta, Terri Seymour and Jackie St Clair — and, wisely, chose to prioritise his present and future, not his past.’

Simon, whose net worth is estimated to be approximately $600m, (£436m), certainly means business with the ring he presented Lauren with.

Alexandra Michell Gemologist Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn told MailOnline: ‘I would estimate this ring is a 15ct oval cut diamond, the stone is a colour D and internally flawless… the best grade on the market.

‘I’d estimate the retail value at $3.4million or £2.5 million. This is very classic in style; a single stone on a white gold or platinum band, to really show off the star of the show- the diamond.’

Jewellery experts at Steven Stone claim it’s worth a little less at $2.5m or (£1,820,000). Managing Director, Zack Stone, said: ‘Lauren’s ring looks to be oval shaped, which was the most popular shape of 2021 for celebrities.

‘The centre diamond is huge, approximately 20ct. It looks like it’s D colour, which makes it an incredibly high value stone. A ring like this would be worth $2,500,000 (£1,820,000) which is the highest value celebrity ring we’ve seen in the last 12 months.’

Eight years ago, Simon declared that he would always love his exes, saying: ‘The love I have for my ex-girlfriends will always be there, so I think that’s true love. People confuse ego, lust, insecurity with true love.

‘But for me, whether it’s Jackie, Mezhgan, Sinitta or Terri, they will be in my life forever. I genuinely love them.’

Simon Cowell’s love life: A timeline

In 2011, model Paula, 60, one of the most famous faces of the 1980s, revealed that she lost her virginity to Simon.  

The star of the decade’s iconic Volkswagen Golf TV commercial said she was 16 at the time.

She told Daily Mail Weekend magazine that she lost her virginity to ‘a boy called Simon’.  

Paula and Simon were childhood sweethearts while growing up in Hertfordshire in the 1970s, she said.

She also claimed, in contrast to his Mr Nasty image on TV, he was ‘very, very protective’ and stopped teachers vilifying her.

She went on: ‘I couldn’t read or write until I was 11. So I was called stupid and bullied by teachers. Simon was really important to me because he stopped them picking on me.’ 

Jackie St Clair (1970s)

Former Page 3 model Jackie dated Simon in the 1970s and maintained a strong friendship with Simon- even after they split. 

Over the years she has travelled on holiday with him. She reportedly had an ongoing feud with Sinitta. Back in 2012 it was reported Sinitta flew home from Barbados early to avoid a showdown with Jackie after their famous fight in 2010.  

At the time of the original fight, Sinitta accused Jackie of ‘evil lying’ by Sinitta as a row brewed over gossip surrounding Simon and the status of his engagement to his then girlfriend, Mezhgan Hussainy.

Sinitta believed that Jackie was blaming her for leaking stories about Simon and his Mezhgan. 

Sinitta (The on-off 20 year romance) 

In 2020, Sinitta suggested her on-off romance with Simon was 'never really over' until he had son Eric with girlfriend Lauren Silverman in 2014 (pictured 1980s)

The pair had an on-off romance for 20 years after first meeting in the 1980s. 

When asked when her and Simon had ‘finally called it quits’ on their love affair, the singer, 58, told New! Magazine: ”There was always an element of “well, it’s never really over.”

Discussing the ructions caused between her and Simon, she added: ‘[Lauren] and I were best friends. I’m really happy for them, but it was hard and caused a fallout.

Sinitta said she had a long-held belief that once Simon had stopped dating other women, they would eventually end up together, adding that she would have married him and ‘never’ fell out of love with him. 

The pair have also been through shared heartache as Sinitta admitted she was still very close to the mogul, after revealing in 2013 she was previously forced to abort their baby in the 1980s following health complications.

It was previously reported Cowell was secretly engaged to Page Three girl Louise Payne, after she split from husband and Right Said Fred star Fred Fairbrass.

But their three-year relationship ended when the buxom blonde said she wanted to start a family with Cowell, but he was too busy.

Cowell apparently popped the question to the now-43-year-old in a lift during a business trip to New York, reported the Daily Star.

The pair met at a function in London in in 1995, after the end of Louise’s marriage to guitarist Fred, now 68. 

They allegedly first exchanged numbers at the party which Cowell was attended with his brother Nicholas.

But during their first date, he had the flu and thought he had blown his chances. A year later they bumped into each other and began a romance.

The source added: ‘The relationship had its ups and downs. They split twice but he was so in love with her he kept trying to make it work.

‘After the third attempt, they split for good. It was just before he started on Pop Idol. Louise wanted kids and he knew he wasn’t ready.

‘He never stopped loving her, though. He was heartbroken.’

She said: ‘I met Simon at the Spearmint Rhino Club where I used to work occasionally. This was before Pop Idol so he wasn’t famous. He is a lovely man and we had a casual relationship for about six months. 

‘We weren’t proper boyfriend or girlfriend, but we’d see each other regularly’.

In 2012, it was revealed Simon felt ‘genuine love’ for Dannii Minogue, 50,  after a fling with the singer in 2007.

The music mogul admitted he felt ‘like a schoolboy’ around the Australian star during her time as a judge on the X Factor.

Details of the romance were revealed in a book entitled The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, written by former BBC journalist Tom Bower. 

In the book, there were several quotes from Cowell speaking about the romance – even though Dannii and Simon had both denied it in 2008.

He is quoted as saying: ‘I had a crush on her. It was Dannii’s hair, the sexy clothes and the t**s. I was like a schoolboy. She was foxy. She was a real man’s girl. Very feminine.’

The split only became public knowledge when Tom Bower published his unauthorised biography Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell.

The judge confessed in the book that he made a mistake asking her to marry him: ‘We came to the conclusion that I’m a hopeless boyfriend.’

He was reported to have given Hussainy a £5million mansion in Beverly Hills as compensation for the embarrassment of cancelling the engagement.

Carmen who met Cowell when she was a judge on BGT said she ‘adored’ the X Factor supremo, but while he admitted they are dating he was very clear about the status of their relationship.

The music mogul told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show: ‘She’s not my girlfriend. We’re people who date.’

Simon met Lauren in 2013 when she was still married to millionaire property developer Andrew Silverman with news of the affair making global headlines. 

Despite previously insisting that he ‘didn’t believe’ in marriage, the father-of-one reassessed his views after falling in love with Lauren – who was left ‘stunned’ by the shock proposal. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Lauren was absolutely stunned and never in a million years expected Simon to pop the question. She burst into tears – happy tears – and obviously said yes straight away.  

‘Lauren has been Simon’s rock over these past few years – supporting him when he broke his back, and through thick and thin generally. They make a wonderful couple.

‘Whilst Simon never thought he was the marrying type, he’s realised he’s met the woman of his dreams – and couldn’t be happier. In the words of Beyoncé, it was time to put a ring on it.’
