The X Factor is just one day from its two-night premiere starting on Wednesday, Sept. 11, and creator/judge Simon Cowell is doing the rounds to promote the new season and his thoughts on becoming a first time dad.
Cowell sat down with TMZ Live on Monday to open up about his impending fatherhood, telling our friend Harvey Levin how he feels about being a dad and what his first reaction to the news was.
“It was a little bit of a surprise, then after a couple of days, I kind of got used to it and now I like the idea of it,” said Simon. “There will be another me on this Earth for many, many more years.”
Seeing as Cowell is about to be a dad, we’re wondering if he’ll tie the knot with baby mama, Lauran Silverman, to which he told Harvey, “I’m not ruling anything out in the future.”
So it could happen. In the meantime, Cowell has moved Lauren into a very expensive 26,000-dollar-a-month New York apartment.
