Simon Cowell's girlfriend gives birth to boy in New York

Posted: 14 Feb 2014 06:59 PM PST

BRITISH TV and music mogul Simon Cowell, who had long said fatherhood was not in his plans, welcomed a son on Friday, his representative AnnMarie Thomson said.

The former "American Idol" judge's girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, gave birth to the 6 pound, 7 ounce (2.9 kilograms) boy in New York. It is her second child and Cowell's first.

Cowell, 54, who gained fame as an acid-tongued judge on television singing contests in the United States and his native Britain, has never married.

"I'm not brilliant with babies," Cowell told U.S. magazine Parade last October. "I never know what to do. But (once he's older) I think I'll be a good dad in terms of advice."

Silverman's pregnancy first came to light last year when her ex-husband filed for divorce in New York and naming Cowell as a co-respondent.

Cowell's "The X Factor" contest was canceled last week by U.S. broadcaster Fox, and he said that he would return to the judges panel on its UK counterpart amid sagging ratings. - Reuters

Teddy bear Ted may guest on 'Wahlburgers'

Posted: 14 Feb 2014 01:45 AM PST

Producer is hoping to rope in Mark Wahlberg's foul-mouthed stuffed animal for an episode of the reality TV series starring Paul Wahlberg.

BEARS like burgers, right? The producer of A&E's Wahlburgers hopes so. He wants Mark Wahlberg's talking bear from the movie Ted to make a special guest appearance on the show.

Rasha Drachkovitch envisions an episode in which the foul-mouthed stuffed animal, voiced by Seth MacFarlane, would show up at the main Wahlburgers restaurant to harass Paul, the Wahlberg brother who runs it.

"Mark's shooting Ted 2, and we've talked about bringing Ted, the bear, into one of the episodes," Drachkovitch told TheWrap. "Mark's going to talk to Seth about it. We're talking about doing it for Season 2. I would love to figure out the special effects and all to have a scene where he kind of plants the movie franchise with the television series. It would be wicked cool."

"You'd come in with the bear – 'Hey, where's Paul Wahlberg?'" said Drachkovitch, doing Ted's Boston accent. "Why not dream big?"

The talking bear segments would need to be – gasp – scripted. But Drachkovitch believes viewers could adjust to the concept of a reality show not being 100% real.

"We break the wall. We're not taking the show super seriously," he said. "If you see a talking bear, and it's scripted, you're in on the joke."

A&E has ordered 18 episodes of the hit show, double the initial order of nine. The series follows Paul Wahlberg as he tries to expand the restaurant with the help of brothers Donnie and Mark. Mark wants to build out the business fast, while Paul wants to take his time and get it right. Alma, the family's matriarch, wants the family to stay true to its Dorchester, Massachusetts, roots. Donnie is caught in the middle.

Ted wouldn't be the first star to drop in on the Wahlbergs.

The show has already featured a visit from Donnie's real-life girlfriend, View co-host Jenny McCarthy. It will also feature Donnie's New Kids On The Block bandmate, Joey McIntyre, recording a Wahlburgers jingle in an upcoming episode. – Reuters
