Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell isn't 'brilliant' with babies

Simon Cowell isn't ''brilliant with babies''.

Although the 'X Factor' star is soon to become a father when his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman gives birth to a baby boy, he admits he isn't terribly adept at looking after little tots.

He said: ''I'm not brilliant with babies. I never know what to do. But once he's older I think I'll be a good dad in terms of advice. And then I'll get to do all the things I want to do, like go to Disneyland or Universal Studios, teach him how to drive - I love all that.''

The 53-year-old star also hopes to pass on his love of music to his son and says he picked up some of his own musical tastes from the music his parents played for him as a child.

He added to the new issue of Parade magazine: ''He'll listen to whatever I listen to and make his own choices. It's funny ... my mum played Frank Sinatra when I was a kid, and because he was her choice, I used to hate it, but I love Sinatra now. He always looked like he was having fun and he didn't conform. That's probably why I've got pictures of him all over my house!''
