Cowell clueless about baby shopping

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has no idea how to “baby shop”.

The music mogul is expecting his first child with socialite Lauren Silverman, following an affair while she was still married to his friend Andrew.

Lauren has now reached a divorce agreement and the pair can look forward to their impending arrival, which is rumoured to be a little boy.

However, there’s just one slight hitch when it comes to fatherhood.

“No, I don’t know how to baby shop,” Simon admitted to TMZ.

When the reporter gave him some advice about what to buy, he coolly responded: “Really? OK, I’ll think about it.”

Simon, 53, is even rumoured to be thinking ahead to what he wants to call the baby.

The TV star is apparently keen to call the little one Eric, after his late father.

When asked if he was excited about the pregnancy, he answered: “Of course I am!”

However, he won’t be looking to baby books for advice on parenthood.

“I’m going to be a good dad! I like to do everything naturally,” he explained.

While Simon’s successful career has made him millions, he recently revealed his child won’t be raking in when he passes on.

Instead, it looks like all his cash will be going to a worthy cause.

“I’m going to leave my money to a charity probably – kids and dogs,” he told Esquire.

“I don’t believe in passing it on from one generation to another.

“Your legacy has to be that hopefully you gave enough people an opportunity so that they could do well and you gave them your time, taught them what you know.”
