Andrew Silverman and wife Lauren are speaking out for the first time since the news broke that Lauren is pregnant with Simon Cowell's baby.

“My top priority is protecting my 7-year-old son while working to resolve all outstanding issues with my wife," Andrew Silverman says in a statement released Thursday. "Hopefully people can respect the interest of our child during this process."

In a separate statement, Lauren said: "I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this."

Andrew Silverman, a friend of Cowell's, has reportedly filed divorce papers in New York listing "adultery" as the reason for their split.

Lauren, meanwhile, was all smiles Thursday as she stepped out in the Hamptons with son Adam.
