Simon Cowell will be in the delivery room when Lauren Silverman gives birth.

The 54-year-old music mogul has confirmed he will be by his pregnant girlfriend's side when she goes into labour with their first child, however, Simon will need to put on a brave face as he admits he isn't "good with blood and guts".

He told the new UK issue of HELLO! magazine: "I will be in the delivery room, but I'll just try not to look too far down."

Asked if he will cut the baby's umbilical cord himself, Simon added: "Are you mad? I'm not good with all that blood and guts stuff."

It appears 'The X Factor' USA judge has had a change of heart in recent weeks after previously claiming he won't watch as Lauren, 37, gives birth to their child in February.

He said in September: "I know this sounds awful, but it's like, you don't want to go in to the restaurant while they're making your dinner. I think there are certain things you shouldn't see and that is one of them. I'll be very close by, but no [I won't watch]."

Meanwhile, Simon got to know his girlfriend's father Steven Davis and stepmother Rosy over dinner in Los Angeles last week and had kind words for his child's future grandfather.

He said: "Her dad's a cool guy. We get on really well."
