Mother of Simon Cowell's unborn child and her husband issue statements on shock baby news

Lauren and Andrew Silverman have finally broken their silence following the announcement that Lauren is pregnant with Simon Cowell's baby.

While the Silvermans are still married by law, husband Andrew issued an official statement to E! about the awkward situation and confessed that he is 'trying to work out the issues' surrounding the shock pregnancy: "My top priority is protecting my 7-year-old son while working to resolve all outstanding issues with my wife. Hopefully people can respect the interest of our child during this process."

A statement has since been released by Lauren via her attorneys, Bernard Clair and Robert Cohen, which reads: "I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this."

Cowell (pictured below enjoying a holiday with the Silvermans in 2012) is yet to comment although did tell reporters at the Television Critics Association meeting in Beverly Hills yesterday (August 1) that "unfortunately at this moment I have to keep it private."

E! also reports that Andrew Silverman filed for divorce a fortnight ago in New York citing adultery on his wife's part as the reason behind the breakdown of his marriage.
