Simon Cowell Says George Clooney's Recent Wedding Makes Him The World's Most Eligible Bachelor.
Simon Cowell said there was a chance he could marry girlfriend Lauren Silverman, the mother of his son Eric, but admitted he was "not exactly a hand's on dad".
He 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.
"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."
Simon said he was looking forward to getting more involved as a father when his son was older.
He said: "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 bloody amazing so I don't have to worry.
"I'm going to be honest - I'm not exactly a hand's on dad. 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."
