Simon Cowell opened up about his engagement to makeup artist Mezghan Hussainy during an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Monday night, and the “American Idol” judge also revealed he is thinking of one day becoming a father.
Leno asked Cowell to set the rumors straight about his reported engagement not long after the interview began.
“Well, I do have somebody in my life now Jay, yes,” Cowell said. “And I kind of made a decision this year to make somebody happy so that’s how I … it’s called giving back.”
Cowell revealed he bought Mezghan’s sparkler on his side of the pond.
“I was asleep I think. No, look I bought her the ring in London,” the Brit revealed.
When asked about when he’ll finally tie the knot, Cowell gave a date range.
“Within the next 10 years,” Cowell laughed.
While Cowell tried not to share too many details, Leno did manage to get the British judge to confirm he is thinking about having little Simons.
“I’m kind of torn because I’m a bit too old to have kids, but then again I think it would be important to have a lot of me-s around in the future,” Cowell noted.
Cowell was also joined on stage during his appearance by Hussainy.
