Simon Cowell Is Engaged! No, Seriously.

By: Betsy Waldman / February 26, 2010

What is the World coming to? Simon Cowell, one of Hollywood’s biggest (and richest) bachelors, is engaged? And more importantly, the American Idol judge has a heart? We guess stranger things have happened.

Mezhgan Hussainy confirmed the news and “was all smiles as she told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the couple, who are living together, are officially engaged.” Mezhgan met Simon a few years ago on the set of Idol, and their relationship began almost a year ago. Wedding rumors have been buzzing for weeks now, and Hussainy revealed that not only are the two engaged, the wedding isn’t far off.

In the past, Simon’s publicist Max Clifford has said, “They are very suited. She is someone who is independent and says what she thinks and feels, and he likes that. He’s probably the happiest I have ever known him in the nine years I’ve been working with him.”

Congrats to the happy couple! And we can’t wait to hear about that pre-nup!
