“I’m sure he’s got a lot of ideas, plans and maybe a few surprises for Lauren, but I imagine it’s going to be a big, really special day for them.
“None of us thought this day would come! Simon is a single person who never wanted to get married, engaged or fathered, but look at him now.”

“He suggested they needed buttercream – but they didn’t because that would make them a cake in my opinion. I’m not sure if anyone won that argument.

Emma believes the birth of 8-year-old Eric has given Simon a new life. Eric is expected to be the centerpiece of his parents’ wedding, along with 16-year-old Adam, whom Lauren had with her ex-husband.
