Piers Morgan confident in Cowell

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell “aspires” to be a good dad, claims Piers Morgan.

Piers appeared on the Britain’s Got Talent panel with the music mogul between 2007 and 2010.

Simon is currently expecting his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman and TV star Piers is sure his pal will do a great job.

“Simon was very close to his own father who died when he was quite young,” he explained to British magazine OK!

“He had a very loving, caring and supportive father and I think Simon will be exactly the same. I’m sure he doesn’t just want to be a judge on a talent show for the rest of his life. He’s got much bigger aspirations and one of them is being a good father. I really wish him well.”

There were rumors recently that Simon was planning to propose to Lauren, but he denied the claims.

His relationship with the brunette started after an affair while she was still married to Simon’s friend Andrew.

Piers admits he was surprised to find out about the pair’s baby news.

“I did find it quite hard to take in, but I think he’s really into it,” he said.

“He’s really into Lauren too and I wish him all the happiness in the world. I texted him saying, ‘If you need any advice on nappy changing, I’m your guy.’”

Piers also added he would love to join the couple at their wedding, should they decide to tie the knot.

“Especially if it’s anything like his 50th birthday party!” he laughed.
