Wedding Bells for Simon and Baby Mama?

Simon Cowell's days as a single guy are coming to an end!

The notoriously cranky "X Factor" judge, who seemed destined to be a perennial bachelor, has hinted that he will marry gal-pal, Lauren Silverman, before their baby arrives.

"Let's put it this way, I wouldn't expect her to be a single mother," the 53-year-old lovestruck star, who has been uncharacteristically mushy and sweet about his relationship, told Ryan Seacrest Tuesday when asked about the "M" word.

The British TV personality continued to gush about the New York socialite, who was — awkward alert! — married to Cowell's pal Andrew Silverman when news first broke she was pregnant with the TV star's child.

"I genuinely never thought [me being a dad] was going to happen, partly because I was scared of who I was going to have kids with," Cowell told Seacrest. However, "Lauren and I get along really well and once I got used to the idea I thought, 'I think this is going to be very good.'"

While Cowell seems excited about fatherhood, he definitely maintains an old-fashioned relationship sensibility when it comes to the delivery of his firstborn, who will be born in London or New York (though he prefers England to America and wants the child to have a British accent).

Asked if he will watch from "south of the equator" when Silverman gives birth, Cowell shot back, "Are you out of your mind? 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."

He added, "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.]"

Ah — now there is the Cowell we know and love.
