The world was shocked when we learned that Simon Cowell was expecting a baby after sleeping with his close friend’s wife. And while the outspoken The X Factor guru may be looking forward to fatherhood, one thing that did not shock us is that he won’t be watching the birth of his child!
Simon Cowell shocked fans when it was revealed that he was going to be a dad, after years of claiming that he would not make a good father. But recently, Cowell had a change of heart, insisting that he is looking forward to being a dad, however, that does not mean he is looking forward to seeing the baby’s birth. In fact, he refuses to watch the miraculous event!
Cowell recently spoke on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, and when he was asked about watching the birth of his child, he laughed: “Are you out of your mind?” Simon then explained: “I know this sounds awful, but it’s like you don’t want to go in to the restaurant while they’re making your dinner. I think there are certain things you shouldn’t see and that is one of them. I’ll be very close by, but no, I won’t watch.” Sorry Simon, but we think there are many dads out there who will disagree with you on this one.
Meanwhile, Cowell was also grilled about whether or not he will marry Lauren Silverman, the woman who is carrying his baby. He didn’t say yes or no, but he did say that he does not expect Lauren: “to be a single mother.” Could that mean that there be wedding bells ringing for Cowell in the future?
What do you think of Cowell’s thoughts on not watching his baby’s birth? Do you think he will make a good father? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear from you! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.
