Did Simon Cowell just hint he was going to marry baby mama Lauren Silverman?! We think so!
During an interview on Tuesday with Ryan Seacrest, the 53-year-old father-to-be opened up about his future family, even going so far as to imply that he was going to make an honest woman out of his 36-year-old girlfriend.
"Let's put it this way, I wouldn't expect her to be a single mother," Cowell said to the host with the most.
Sounds a lot like silver-tongued Brit is planning on popping the question to the New York socialite who made headlines when it was revealed she was pregnant with Cowell's baby, despite still being married to the X Factor judge's friend, Andrew Silverman. After 10 years of marriage, the now estranged spouses, who have a 7-year-old son together, Adam, 7, settled their divorce on Aug. 14.
Cowell also told Seacrest that he didn't think he would ever be a father, "I genuinely never thought [me being a Dad] was going to happen. 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.'"
Despite his new lease on life, Cowell says his lady love will be on her own during the birth of their (rumored-to-be) son. When Seacrest asked if Cowell would be in the hospital room during the baby's birth, the former American Idol judge said, "Are you out of your mind? 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." The music mogul continued, "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.]"
Well we guess a leopard can't change all of his spots! Even if Cowell won't be in the room during the birth, we are glad to see his softer, more paternal side.
