Michael Skupin is ready to talk.
The ex-contestant said in a statement:
The 54-year-old explained that he's turning to religion following his arrest, adding:

"I just said, 'Enjoy it.' If I had been his age and someone had said, 'You're going to have a baby,' I'm not sure how I would have coped with it. But he did call me and I said, 'When you've embraced it, you'll be amazed how much you are going to love it. It will change your life for the better.'"
We're not sure what we love more, Simon's advice or the fact that the heartthrob still turns to the TV personality for advice!
As we previously reported, the-23-year-old confirmed he was expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth back in August.
However, the 56-year-old noted that if he could become accustomed to being a proud papa then the British cutie will do just fine.
On first becoming a parent, he explained:
This season of the hit singing competition started off with a twist when fans were put in control to decide which judge would coach each category!
But when Simon found out he would be coaching the "overs" category, he was legitimately ANGRY!
Upon hearing he would have to mentor the batch of middle aged contestants, the former American Idol judge was visibly annoyed — and even blurted out in front of the audience:
While most are upset by this news that seems like the beginning of the group's end, their boss Simon Cowell promises that time off is just what the boys need!
The X Factor judge, who assembled 1D back in 2010, revealed that he has known the hiatus was coming.
Simon explained to press at the X Factor launch:
And the former American Idol judge looked perfectly happy snuggled up to his lady love Lauren Silverman and their two-year-old son, Eric.
Though the X-Factor boss and the brunette beauty were clearly ready to soak up the sun in their suits and matching Ray Bans, little Eric was perfectly protected beneath an adorable little hat and swimming T-shirt.
Nonetheless, we are OBSESSED with Simon's son updates.
What do U think?! Do you like this softer Simon?

It looks like Zayn Malik is ready to OFFICIALLY kick off his solo career!!
After leaving One Direction earlier this year and having a VERY public falling out with his buddy Naughty Boy, it's been rumored that the 22-year-old has been trying to strike up a solo deal with RCA!
Well now it sounds like Zayn finally got what he was looking for and it's all because of his good pal Simon Cowell!
That's right! The same Simon Cowell who helped put 1D together in the first place JUST helped their former member sign with a COMPETING RECORD LABEL!!!
The former American Idol judge recently said he wouldn't be surprised to see the rest of the member of One Direction take a little bit of time off and possibly split for good!
We have to wonder if he'll help everyone else the same way he helped Zayn when the time comes!
