Simon Cowell plans not to enter delivery room when his girlfriend Lauren Silverman gives birth to their first child. The judge of "The X Factor (US)" revealed the plan in an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, September 24.
When asked if he would be with Lauren in delivery room, Simon answered with a laugh, "Are you out of your mind?" He added, "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.]"
"I genuinely never thought [me being a Dad] was going to happen," he said of being a parent. "Partly because I was scared of who I was going to have kids with... [but] Lauren and I get along really well and once I got used to the idea I thought, 'I think this is going to be very good.' "
The music mogul also hinted at his plan to marry his baby mama. "Let's put it this way, I wouldn't expect her to be a single mother," Simon said.
Simon, who referred to his unborn child as a boy, told Ryan that he wanted his child to have British accent. "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 revealed, adding, "And his first words will be, 'You're absolutely useless!'
