Valentine’s Day weekend is over. You probably had way too much fun slipping and sliding on the treacherous ice in the Northeast if you happen to live there.

Some amazing news spread left and right over the passed three days. I mean, “jaw-dropping, OMG, AWW” quality kind of events happened in pop culture.

This list was originally “5 Love-ly Things That Occurred in the Celeb World Post-Valentine’s Day 2014” about fifteen minutes ago.

That’s just how amazing.

So here we go:

1. The epic photos of Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell’s son, Eric Phillip Selig Cowell, born in New York City on February 14th. Now that is a name.

2. Ellen Paige comes out as gay. Alright! Can you star in another movie with Michael Cera ASAP? Can that be arranged, Ellen? I’m having Juno deprivations at the moment.

3. Christina Aguilera is now engaged to Matthew Rutler. This guy definitely knows how to sweep a girl off her feet.

4. Jennifer Lawrence is presenting at the Oscars this year. I’m literally dying for the premiere of the 86th Academy Award Show on Sunday, March 2nd to come already.

5. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s daughter Hazel was born today, February 16th. Daddy Krasinski is jazzed about it.

6. Canadian artist LIGHTS and Blessthefall’s Beau Bokan’s baby girl, Rocket Wild Bokan, has arrived! In honor of this, can we just watch them cover Lana del Rey’s “Video Games”?

This is too much for love cupid Eros to handle. Can we cool it until next year, guys?

Simon Cowell is Going to be a Father?!

This morning I learned that 53 year old grouch Simon Cowell, X Factor judge and former American Idol judge, is going to be a father.

And that’s not the best part.

The mother of his child is his friend Andrew Silverman’s estranged wife, Lauren Silverman.

Yes. You read correctly. Simon Cowell got his friend’s wife pregnant.

The two have been hanging out quite a bit over the past two years.

Real estate developer Andrew Silverman and 36 year old New York socialite Lauren Silverman “have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” a source says. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”

Lauren Silverman plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell. She’s ten weeks along in her pregnancy.

I’m not sure how to react to this news.

First there’s the fact that he’s having a child with a woman who is married to another man.

Another man who he happens to call his “mate.”

Isn’t this a violation of bro code? I mean, I know that Andrew and Lauren have been separated for a while but Jesus! That doesn’t give him permission to swoop in and impregnate the woman!

Then there’s the terrible reality that this is Simon Cowell we’re talking about here. The man we love to hate.

Back in 2009 he said, “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts. With kids, you’ve got a routine you can’t escape from. You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.”

His feelings on being a father changed last year, as he stated in an interview with AOL Music, “I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them. The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids. I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”

This year he claims, “If I knew I could be – how do I put this delicately – faithful, I would. I do like kids, I’m just not sure I’d be any good for the first six months. I don’t think I’d adopt because I’d rather have my own. I’d have to say I’d like a little girl.”

I wouldn’t exactly trust him to babysit a child, much less be the parent or guardian of one. He’s just not the type of guy you can picture cradling a child in his arms.

No matter how hard I try I just can’t do it!

I hope Simon Cowell treats the youngster better than he treats the contestants on The X Factor.

I really do.
