TV mogul Simon Cowell says that he will brainwash his yet to be born son to talk with a British accent. The mother, Lauren Silverman, is based in New York and hence Cowell says that he will be using tapes of his own voice to teach the baby. According to the Daily Star, he is even sure of what he wants his son's first words to be.
"When he is asleep they are going to be playing in the background. I am being serious. I am doing that for sure, 100 per cent. I want the first words to be 'Hello Simon', not 'Hi Simon'," he said.
Cowell already has high hopes from his unborn son as he wants him to work his way to success.
"I never inherited anything in my life, and everything I have I had to earn. But I think that's what made me enjoy my life more. I want my son to feel like he's got to prove his own way and I'd like to do what my dad did for me,'' he says.
Cowell said his late father Eric was the one who taught him to appreciate every person not considering their background.
''He once said to me, 'You've got to realise that everyone around you has a sign on their forehead that says Make Me Feel Important'. I've always remembered that," Cowell said.
''You've got to understand that the guy who holds the door open is as important as the producer or the director, because it's a job. I think that was the best piece of advice I was ever given," he added.
He has also confessed that he might name his son Simon.
"My number one choice is Simon because I like the name. His birthday is going to be very close to my dad's birthday," the 53-year-old stated.
