Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell have a very special relationship on The X Factor, communicating mainly in barbed words and jabbing humor. But as anyone familiar with Simon knows, he wouldn’t have asked the “Born in the USA” singer to be on the judging panel unless he deeply respected her. In fact, the two have grown so close in their time at the table, Demi even jokes about being Simon’s future son’s godmother!

In a September 30 interview with Life & Style, Demi elaborates on the major changes in her fellow XF judge’s life since finding out he and girlfriend Lauren Silverman are expecting a baby. “He’s started to be on time, which is really weird. And he’s a lot more relaxed. He’s opening up a lot.”

Uh oh, relaxed? “Opening up”? Who the heck is this guy she’s talking about? The only openness we’ve seen from Simon is the plummeting of his V-neck! Oh, and his nearly naked opinion-giving. But Demi is super confident about his trajectory toward being a dad, saying he’ll “definitely” be a great one.

As for whether or not Demi thinks she’ll really be his kid’s godmother, well, it sounds like she’s not campaigning too hard for the role. “I don’t think I’m actually ready to be one by any means, but I think I just want to be able to say, ‘he hates that I’m the godmother to his child.’”

A worthy reason, of course Dems.
