Take a minute and think about every celebrity dude in the world, and then think about how romantic it would be to have one of them propose to you. Now erase that, because Simon Cowell.

In an interview for On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Simon talked to his old American Idol pal about his family plans, now that baby mama Lauren Silverman is pretty far along with their baby boy. And though their baby isn’t due until February, and Simon is planning on spending a good portion of his fall and winter months plopped behind the judgement desk on The X Factor 2013, that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning on something else that’s pretty big.

Simon surprised us by saying he doesn’t plan on being in the delivery room for the birth of his first-born child, commenting “Are you out of your mind?” when Ry asked him about witnessing the miracle of childbirth. “"I know this sounds awful, but it's like you don't want to go into the restaurant while they're making your dinner,” he explained (confusingly, because yeah we do).

"I think there are certain things you shouldn't see and that is one of them. I'll be very close by, but no," the XF judge explained of his squeamishness. But you guys? That’s not the most shocking confession he made.

When Simon’s former colleague was asked about whether he’s got a marriage proposal in mind for his future child’s mom, our mouths dropped at the answer. “Let’s put it this way,” he teased, “I wouldn’t expect her to be a single mother."

Did we hear that right? Simon Cowell: The Marrying Kind. Who would’ve thunk it?
