Simon Cowell reportedly intends to be on hand for son's birth despite prior comments
UPI News Service, 09/26/2013
Simon Cowell plans to be in the delivery room when his son is born, despite jokes he has made to the contrary, sources told E! News.
Cowell was asked on Tuesday's edition of the radio show "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" if he intends to be present when girlfriend Lauren Silverman gives birth to his first child.
"Are you out of your mind?" Cowell quipped. "There are certain things you shouldn't see and that is one of them."
But E! News said the statement was just an example of Cowell's dry sense of humor.
"Don't believe everything Simon says about not being in the delivery room. He jokes around a lot," one of Silverman's close friends told E! News.
"I'm sure he was just trying to be funny. He's very committed to being there for the birth."
