'Triskaidekaphobic' Simon Cowell fears baby will be born on February 13
Simon Cowell is afraid his new baby son will be born on February 13.
The 54-year-old music mogul, who goes to crazy lengths to avoid the number, is terrified that his first child with pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman will be born on the unlucky date, the Daily Star reported.
The X Factor boss had previously admitted to hopping over the 13th step on a stairway and avoiding the numbers 13 and 67, and confessed that it is a "kind of sign of madness".
Cowell's condition is medically known as "triskaidekaphobia", which stems from the Christian beliefs that Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th to sit at the Last Supper table in the Bible.
