Olly doesn't think baby will change Simon much

Simon Cowell will soon become a parent for the first time but Olly Murs thinks he’s already proved he’s a good dad.

Olly says that Simon – who is expecting a baby with socialite Lauren Silverman – has often acted like a father to him and fellow X Factor stars One Direction.

It is amazing news [that he’s going to have a baby],’ says Olly, 29.

I don’t think it will change him at all. I think he has always been a very caring person.

He has always been like a bit of a father figure to the likes of myself and the One Direction lads.’

Simon, 54, might have some paternal instincts but Olly still thinks he’ll have to change his lifestyle a lot when the baby arrives.

I think it will be quite weird for him to have another person to look after because he is only used to looking after himself,’ Olly tells The Sun.

It would be great to see him on Xtra Factor or The X Factor USA with a nice little sick stain on his white shirt – that would be quite hilarious.’
