It seems Simon Cowell has had a change of heart about becoming a father. When the news first broke about his married lover and socialite, Lauren Silverman, becoming pregnant with his baby (READ HERE), the news shocked everyone.
Even Cowell wasn’t initially thrilled with the news.
Now, the music mogul tells Us In Touch Weekly, “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”
In fact, the duo were recently spotted displaying their very public affection for one another. And, the formerly married woman was able to got a quicky divorce from husband and businessman Andrew Silverman.
“I’m really looking forward to (fatherhood). My dad was a great influence on me and I hope I can teach my child some of what he taught me,” he continued.
But don’t expect Cowell to be changing any diapers. During a sit down interview with late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, he insisted he won’t be changing any diapers.
He also tells the magazine, “I’m not sure I’m that great with babies, so I’m going to need to get a lot of help with that part.”
e then added, “But I’m pretty good with kids, especially when they’re at an age where they can talk. I like the idea of having a pal!”
Silverman, 36, is due in February 2014.
