Smitten Simon Cowell
Simon Cowell is desperate for kids with his make-up girlfriend, Mezhgan Hussainy
Simon Cowell thinks Mezghan Hussainy is "the one".
The 'American Idol' judge - who has sparked rumours he is engaged to the make-up artist - admitted he is thinking about starting a family with the brunette beauty.
Speaking to his friend Piers Morgan on an episode of his UK TV show 'Life Stories', Simon - who once claimed that he would never risk his fortune by getting married - revealed: "I'm smitten with Mezhgan - I think she's the one. She's very special."
Asked if he would have kids with the 36-year-old beauty, he revealed: "I think I need to have little Simons around."
Mezhgan, 36, was in the audience - and she and Simon lovingly pulled faces at each other throughout the chat.
An audience member revealed: "She was two or three rows back but they kept exchanging glances. Piers asked him several times whether he was engaged but he would not confirm anything."
Despite his comments, many former girlfriends of 50-year-old Simon - including singer Sinitta and presenter Terri Seymour - have admitted he always vowed not to marry or have children.
Shortly before they split in 2008, Terri said: "Everyone knows he doesn't want marriage and kids. Although marriage doesn't really bother me as my own mum raised me on her own, I definitely want a baby some time down the road. But it's never something we discuss."
Simon and Mezghan sparked speculation they were engaged earlier this week when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger.
However, both have refused to comment on the speculation.
