Simon Cowell has never been shy about claiming that he wouldn’t make a good father, but now that his girlfriend is pregnant, Cowell seems to be changing his tune. In fact, during a recent holiday vacation, Cowell was spotted holding a fan’s baby and looking very comfortable coddling the cute little blonde boy. Meanwhile, Cowell revealed to E! News that to help him prepare for fatherhood, he bought a pair of puppies. “I bought Squiddly and Diddly as a means of preparation. I feel this real kind of protective love. God only knows what I’ll be like with a baby,” Cowell explained.
But taking care of puppies and holding babies on the beach is not the only thing that Cowell is doing to prepare for his son’s birth. Simon was criticized in the past for being caught smoking around Silverman while pregnant, and he claims he is trying his best to quit that habit before the baby comes. Insisting that he will never smoke around his baby, Cowell went on to reveal: “I’ve learnt that. I’m trying to do electronic cigarettes, they’re not bad.”
As the couple prepare for their son’s arrival in February, there is one thing that Simon is certain he wants his son to have: a British accent! Despite the fact that his son will be surrounded by US accents, Simon says he will tape his own voice and play it while the child sleeps. Hmm, we wonder if that will actually work?
