After a month of gossip and criticism, Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman have finally found time for some much needed R&R. The couple were spotted (and photographed) strolling together on a getaway in St. Tropez this Friday. This is the first appearance the two have made together since the announcement of Lauren’s pregnancy. The two looked completely at ease in their holiday getup, while taking a trip to a nearby go-kart track. On Saturday, the couple was photographed again, taking a leisurely stroll on the beach.

The media mogul apparently loves his new role as doting boyfriend.

Things have evidently returned to normal, after the out-of-the-blue pregnancy caused some social media ruckus earlier this month. On Aug. 14, Silverman filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Andrew, and she and the X Factor judge have been in a full-on relationship since then.

An unnamed source further confirmed for E!News, saying that Cowell and Silverman are now 100% together. The source reportedly said: "They are definitely a couple. The relationship is loving and they're very happy together." While fans might not be used to seeing Simon Cowell in this light, apparently the man is very happy with his new lifestyle. He even broke his silence over being a dad recently.

The couple are now open and thrilled about their relationship.

"Things are changing in my life right now, for the better," he told the BBC. "I'm proud to be a dad. It's something I haven't thought of before, and then, now I know I feel good about it. And she [Silverman] is a very special girl."
