Kelly Rowland will be sharing a lot of time seated beside Simon Cowell when they both judge on “The X Factor” next season, so if there’s anyone who can talk honestly about his mean on-screen persona, it’s her.
Amidst the cheating/pregnancy scandal he’s currently embroiled in, Kelly thinks as far as fatherhood is concerned, he’s up for the challenge.
“I think Simon will be a wonderful father,” Kelly told E! News at the TCAs. “It’s not my news to share but I do know about Simon and his character. He’s going to be a great dad.”
“I think that he is always respectful, always classy,” she added. “And I think that he will be like that as a father. He will be a classic father figure.”
Kelly then went on to call him “a leader,” and that if the baby turns out to be a girl, he’ll be more than prepared. On this season’s judges’ panel, the Brit is surrounded by women, saying if he needs her help babysitting, she’d do it in a heartbeat.
“If he wants me to,” she said. “I love babies!”
As its been reported everywhere, Simon is expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman, his best friend’s wife.
