Simon Cowell is scared of having children

X-Factor judge says he’s got reservations about starting a family at 51 with fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy

While everybody at the X Factor studio cooed over judge Dannii Minogue’s little boy Ethan, it seems nothing can make music boss Simon Cowell broody.


The head judge has admitted he’s scared of starting a family with fiancée, Mezhgan Hussainy, and blames his age, reports Look magazine.

“I worry about that because of my age,” admitted Simon. “When I was younger my dad used to play football with me. And I worry that if I was 70…”

But it seems it’s not just his age holding him back from daddy duties, as Simon also admits he’s not really a fan of babies at all!

“If children could be born at the age of 5, I’d like that,” said the music mogul. “I like them at that age when they can talk and understand. I’m not sure I could deal with the whole ‘ga ga goo’ thing. But I genuinely like kids.”


Come on Simon, we can just see you strutting around LA with a stylish Bugaboo…
