X Factor boss cools talk of marriage to Mezhgan Hussainy


Simon Cowell has changed his mind about wanting to have kids.

The music mogul – who last year claimed he needed to have more Simons around’ – now feels too old to start a family.

The reality is, with the way I live my life, I wouldn’t have the patience,’ says Simon, 51.

I’d sort of want people born at the age of 10, I think.

Truthfully, with the schedule, the crazy hours, I don’t think it would work.’

Simon, who announced his engagement to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, 37, in March 2010, also appears to have lost his enthusiasm for becoming a husband.

Yeah. Let’s just leave that one,’ he tells GQ magazine in a new interview.

And Simon‘s mum, Julie, 86, has always believed her son’s proposal to Mezhgan was a bit rash.

‘I think [the engagement]
was too quick,’ she says. ‘Marriage is a very big step.’
