Or possibly ever.
Simon Cowell has a lot on his plate - two new shows, a record label and a girlfriend he may or may not marry sometime soon - so when he was asked about having kids, it wasn't too big of a surprise to hear that he is resistant. In a recent interview with GQ, he conceded that having children would be a lot of work and require time from him that he just doesn't have. So, for the time being, we don't think he'll be buying tiny, tight fitting t-shirts for anyone but himself.
However, should he have a son or daughter in the future, that kid better learn right quick that they won't have everything handed to them. In fact, it sounds like the future Cowell kiddies might not get anything from their dad as Simon has promised most of his fortune to charity. He explains:
“One of the good things about making money is that you can help other people. It feels good when you do it. I like doing it. But the idea that the whole lot just gets moved to another person, that’s ridiculous. I don’t think it’s good for people … Unless you go through that discovery process, you never appreciate what you’ve got. There’s no context. If I was given a ton of money when I was 21, God only knows where I’d be now. I certainly wouldn’t be doing this.”
And then where would he world be?! Just imagine a life without THIS Simon Cowell! Ridunkulous!
It's obvious the guy has a heart as big as his ego (kidding!) and even though we understand his reasonings, we hope one day he reconsiders and has a little tyke of his own. Someone to look up to him and carry on his legacy. Or at least someone to turn up the TV when he gets old!
