“Simon’s mad about her,” an insider tells Us. “But I think he’ll wait until after she gives birth.”

In September, Cowell hinted that he would one day marry the NYC socialite. “Let’s put it this way, I wouldn’t expect her to be a single mother,” the dad-to-be told Ryan Seacrest during a radio interview.
