Simon Cowell: 'I'm The Only Iconic Bachelor Left - Thanks To George Clooney'
Music mogul says that following Clooney's wedding, he's planning to hang on to the title...
Simon Cowell has boasted that he is 'the world's most eligible bachelor' now that George Clooney is married.
Following the actor's recent nuptials to Amal Alamuddin, the X Factor judge reckons he has now claimed Clooney's title, adding he plans to stay unmarried for a bit longer.
Despite dating Lauren Silverman - who is the mother of his son Eric - SiCo told Hello! magazine: "I'm the only iconic bachelor left in the entire world - thanks for that George Clooney.
"I think it's a title I'll keep for a while longer if I'm honest. I've never said no to marriage but then again I couldn't imagine having a kid at one point and now look at me."
The 55-year old continued: "I guess I was always nervous I may not end up getting on particularly well with the person I was going to have a kid with and I didn't want to make the wrong decision.
"The fact is, our baby wasn't planned was actually the best thing for us to have done and we're very happy now."
Cowell went on to add that there is a strong chance he will marry Lauren, but for now, he plans to wait.
Speaking of his son Eric, Simon admitted: "I'm probably in a far better position to be a father now than I would have been ten years ago."That's the way I'd look at it. And at the end of the day we have really great nannies that are b****y amazing so I don't have to worry. I'm going to be honest - I'm not exactly a hands-on dad."
As for whether he plans to show Eric how to woo the ladies, Simon concluded: "I want to fast forward a few years so I can take him go-karting and then introduce him to women. There are a few years to go yet."
