Simon Cowell has said he is keeping his phone on during the Britain's Got Talent auditions - in case his baby arrives.
The star, 54, predicted that the baby he is expecting with Lauren Silverman, who is in New York, will not be the most well behaved.
He told the Daily Mirror: "I am keeping my phone on during auditions 100 per cent. If it happens I just have to go and dash onto a plane.
"I probably will be nervous when it all happens. I am going to watch Father Of The Bride tonight to get used to that.
"I have got a feeling my child is going to be really naughty."
He added: "I would like to be at the birth - but a little bit far away."
Simon has previously told how he won't be changing nappies, saying "100 per cent absolutely not going near that" and if Lauren has tried to change his mind it hasn't worked.
"I haven't changed a nappy before and I won't. I just can't do it," he said at the auditions at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
The X Factor mogul insisted that the new arrival wouldn't change his lifestyle and that the couple planned to spend more time in Britain to raise the baby, who he joked would be called Simon Junior.
"We'll travel a bit. We made the decision when we came back to the UK last year that Lauren wants to live here for a while," he told The Sun.
