London - Simon Cowell insists he will never change nappies.

'The X Factor' boss, who is about to become a father for the first time this month, would rather his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 37, change dirty nappies and claims welcoming a son into the world won't affect his life too much.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "I haven't changed a nappy before and I won't. I just can't do it," adding, "I would like to be at the birth ... but a little bit far away."

The 54-year-old star reportedly has a private jet on standby as Lauren is based in New York and he is currently in the UK for the new series of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Talking about impending fatherhood, he said: "It hasn't arrived yet but it is not going to change too much. I got the dogs in first and had a good time with them.

"Lauren knows what my work schedule is so she is cool with that and we will travel a little bit.

"We made the decision to come back to the UK and she wants to live here for a while."
Simon and Manhattan socialite Lauren are reportedly planning on getting married in coming months and their baby is due on February 28.

Speaking at the 'Britain's Got Talent' auditions in Hammersmith, London, yesterday (11.02.14), Simon said: "I am keeping my phone on during auditions 100 percent. If it happens I just have to go and dash onto a plane.

"I probably will be nervous when it all happens. I am going to watch 'Father of the Bride' tonight to get used to that."

The music mogul added: "I have got a feeling my child is going to be really naughty." - Bang Showbiz
