Music mogul Simon Cowell has now confessed that he wants to watch the moment when his son enters the world. He had previously said he did not want to be at the birth and that he would instead wait in a room next door. But now apparently he has changed his mind.
"I don't want to miss such an important moment. I have to get over my phobia of delivery suites," Cowell said.
His fiancé, Lauren Silverman had reportedly asked for his support when she gives birth.
"They have a very close bond now and Lauren gets a lot of strength and encouragement from Simon. She just can't imagine him not being there at such an important –moment," a source close to the couple said.
"Simon has totally changed his mind on the whole birth plan and is telling everyone he will be there. Simon definitely has a phobia of the whole giving birth thing but he's working hard to get over it before the big day. Lauren is thrilled and has been telling all her friends that Simon has had a change of heart!" the source added.
The baby is due by the end of February and Cowell is getting prepared attending private antenatal classes at his Los Angeles mansion with Lauren. According to Daily Star, he also has a team of top doctors on permanent standby to make sure the pregnancy goes like clockwork.
Cowell already has high hopes for 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.
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 said.
