It turns out the X Factor boss and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman are having a ……..
The press is reporting how the 53-year-old music supremo appeared to confirm the news that he is expecting a son,when he told presenter Ryan Seacrest how he plans to ensure that “he” (the baby) has a British accent.
In the radio interview, he joked with Seacrest, “I said to Lauren, ‘What if I just play me on tape while the baby is sleeping so the baby can hear me and have a British accent?” He continued, “And his first words will be, ‘You’re absolutely useless!’”
Simon hinted that he may put a ring on Lauren’s finger, adding, “I wouldn’t expect Lauren to be a single mother.”
Seacrest also quizzed the music mogul on if he plans to be at the birth, to which he replied, “Are you out of your mind? There are certain things you shouldn’t see, and that is one of them.”
Earlier in the month, he told of his joy at being at the baby’s first scan. He told reporters, “I went to see the scan today and it is just surreal. You see this thing which is now alive, moving around. So I am happy.”
The father-to-be previously ruled out parenthood but is coming around to the idea.
“The fact that it can happen at this time of my life is fantastic, maybe a miracle,” he explained. “Once I heard the news about the baby … little bit of shock, then I got used to it, and then I became incredibly paternal and protective and I feel very attached to the baby already.”
Mini Cowell is thought to be due around February.
