Simon Cowell: I don't have the patience for children

Wednesday August 24, 2011

Simon Cowell has dismissed talk of marriage and babies in a new interview.

The X Factor mogul had previously talked about marrying and having children with make-up artist fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy, after revealing he was "smitten" and that "she's the one".

But in the latest issue of GQ, he appeared to back-pedal out of his earlier comments, saying: "Let's just leave that one."

Simon - who previously discussed of having "little Simons" - seemed to have ruled out the possibility of having kids.

"At my age, definitely. The reality is, with the way I live my life, I wouldn't have the patience. I'd sort of want people born at the age of 10, I think," he revealed.

The 51-year-old added: "[I thought about it] a little while, but not seriously. I was sort of probably just in the moment. Truthfully, with the schedule, the crazy hours, I don't think it would work."
