This couple has been living together for a while now. I guess it was about time for Simon to ask her the big question. It had been rumored that Cowell ”wanted to do something unexpected and out of character on Valentine’s Day and decided to splash out on a ring.” No wedding date was mentioned but Mezhgan, the make-up artist, cryptically said, “don’t put off shopping for our wedding gifts for too long”. Of course we all expect their to be a prenup with this one no matter how “in love” they are.
Mezhgan Hussainy (not related to Saddam Hussein), 36, is an Afghanistan native and has been dating Simon for almost a year, according to previous statement’s by Simon Cowell‘s publicist Max Clifford.
“They are very suited,” Clifford said earlier. “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.” Piers Morgan interviewed him on February 16th and got this:
‘Are you engaged?’ I asked, as the audience whooped with glee.
‘No comment,’ he chuckled. Pause. ‘But I am smitten with Mezhgan, I think she’s The One.’
As the room erupted, he turned to her sitting a few yards away and added: ‘You know when you’ve found somebody very special.’
It has been said Mezghan’s engagement ring is reported to be worth over $250,000. That’s one heck of a commitment!
Cowell’s mother recently revealed her 50-year-old son is “glowing with happiness” too. Julie Cowell, 84, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw him. He looks exceptionally happy and there’s such a glow about him. I think turning 50 made him reassess his life. I think he would make a wonderful husband. Now I really think marriage and fatherhood are going to happen for Simon. I would like to see an official engagement, a marriage, and yes, then grandchildren.”
Talk about the perfect match, the make up artist of a well known TV personality, what more could they have in common? Do you think this marriage is going to last?
