"Simon said he would never get married, and obviously Lauren has been by his side and you know 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!" Holden confessed, per the outlet.

Cowell and Silverman confirmed their relationship in 2013.
