3 Reasons Simon Cowell Will Make a Good Dad

Do you think Simon would make a great dad?

Simon Cowell is considering fatherhood? For realz? Seems the grumpy former American Idol judge could be making the leap to becoming a parent, and really, we have a few good reasons why he’ll make a good dad.

#1 Simon is really a softie. You don’t think we were buying that whole mean guy persona on American Idol, do you? If Simon had you snowed into thinking he was Britain’s number one meanie, think again. We believe that Simon is, under it all, a very sweet person. You can see it in some of the smaller moments on Idol a sweet complement here, a wink and a smile there… Simon was just playing the part and is really a nice guy at heart.

#2 Simon needs a change of pace. Simon’s been working hard at raking the money in in for a long time, he’s been judging American Idol for years, and a new baby in his life could be just the change of pace to help him slow down and stop to smell the roses.

#3 Simon will retire his insults. With a child to become the apple of his eye, we bet any residual insulting behavior will be a thing of the past. Even though we think Simon is really a softie (see #1), he will still learn a kinder and gentler way and understand the power of praise and encouragement. It’s just a pity that future Idol contestants won’t be able to reap the benefits of a sweet, new Simon Cowell!

A friend of Simon Cowell and fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy’s says that Mezhgan is “not prepared to wait much longer” and said last week she will “start trying before the end of the year and that Simon is up for it.”

Do you think a baby is in Simon Cowell’s future?
