Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell will be at baby's birth
Simon Cowell has confirmed he will stand by girlfriend Lauren Silverman when she gives birth to the couple's first child next year.
Simon Cowell will be in the delivery room when Lauren Silverman gives birth.
The 54-year-old music mogul has confirmed he will be by his pregnant girlfriend's side when she goes into labour with their first child, however, Simon will need to put on a brave face as he admits he isn't ''good with blood and guts''.
He told the new UK issue of HELLO! magazine: ''I will be in the delivery room, but I'll just try not to look too far down.''
Asked if he will cut the baby's umbilical cord himself, Simon added: ''Are you mad? I'm not good with all that blood and guts stuff.''
It appears 'The X Factor' USA judge has had a change of heart in recent weeks after previously claiming he won't watch as Lauren, 37, gives birth to their child in February.
He said in September: ''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].''
Meanwhile, Simon got to know his girlfriend's father Steven Davis and stepmother Rosy over dinner in Los Angeles last week and had kind words for his child's future grandfather.
He said: ''Her dad's a cool guy. We get on really well.''
