Simon Cowell shocked us all when he announced that, not only was he expecting a baby, but he knocked up his close friend’s wife. And even more shocking is that The X Factor guru, who has always claimed to be awful with kids, thinks he is going to make a good father! What’s up with that?
Simon Cowell has never been shy of revealing that he is not the best with kids, so it was shocking to learn that he is going to be father. But since he found out that he is expecting, he seems to have changed his tune. In an interview with Parade Magazine, Cowell, who is expecting a baby boy with socialite Lauren Silverman, says that he will be good dad in at least one aspect! “I’m not brilliant with babies. I never know what to do. But once he’s older, I think I’ll be a good dad in terms of advice. And then I’ll get to do all the things I want to do, like go to Disneyland or Universal Studios, teach him how to drive – I love all that.”
It certainly sounds as though Cowell is getting excited about having a child. And he’s even started to get excited about baby names! In fact, in another interview with Extra, Cowell revealed his name of choice for his son: Simon! Cowell also would not mind using Eric, which is his late father’s name, as he added: “His birthday is going to be very close to my dad’s birthday.”
