British music mogul SIMON COWELL has hinted he will finally settle down and marry the mother of his unborn child, insisting he is "not ruling anything out".
The X Factor boss is set to become a father for the first time after confirming his girlfriend Lauren Silverman is pregnant with his child, and reports suggest the long-time bachelor may now be planning to make their relationship more permanent.
Cowell was asked about the marriage rumors in a new interview with TMZ.com, and he refused to confirm or deny whether he plans to pop the question to Silverman.
He says, "I'm not ruling anything out in the future. If you'd have asked me a year ago if at my age, I was gonna have a baby, I probably would have said no. So I think you have just got to take each day as it comes now. Whatever feels right you should do."
Cowell also confirms he has bought Silverman her own apartment so she can feel "a bit more settled" following her recent divorce.
He adds, "I did sort out an apartment for her, which she moved into this weekend and is very happy. She feels a bit more settled now. She's happy."
