London, Aug 22 IANS | 2 years ago

Music mogul Simon Cowell, who is expecting his first child with New York City socialite Lauren Silverman, says he can't wait to become a father.

"I'm happy and excited," quoted Cowell as saying at the London premiere of One Direction's new movie, "This Is Us".

"Unfortunately, I have to keep this for the private moment. It's just one of those things. But thank you very much anyway," said Cowell.

Cowell, who split from ex-fiance Mezhgan Hussainy long time back, also insists that he can't talk about his relationship with Silverman openly because it's a sensitive subject.

"I would love to talk, but I have to respect a lot of people's feelings right now. There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there's a lot of people's feelings involved here," he added.

Silverman was previously married to businessman Andrew Silverman.
