Simon Cowell wants his acts to perform at his wedding
The 54-year-old music mogul hinted he is ready to tie the knot with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman - who is pregnant with his first child - by suggesting he would have stars from his record label and talent shows 'The X Factor' and 'Britain's Got Talent' take to the stage at his nuptials.
The couple wouldn't be short of international superstars to serenade them as One Direction, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd and Susan Boyle are just a few of the names from his roster who could perform.
Simon told the Daily Star newspaper: "All my artists would have to sing. I couldn't just choose one. It would be a long wedding."
The pair are tipped to head down the aisle early next year following the birth of their baby boy - which is due on February 28 - as Simon is reportedly eager for his 87-year-old mother Julie to see him marry Lauren.
The brunette beauty is said to have agreed to wed in a traditional church ceremony near her future mother-in-law's home in Sussex, South East England, and it is likely to be an intimate affair.
According to reports by The Sun, Simon's close pals Louis Walsh, Topshop mogul Sir Philip Green, hypnotist Paul McKenna, and his ex-girlfriend Sinitta are the only celebrities to have made the guest list.
Lauren will also be joined by friends and family for a "blessing" in her native US.
It's expected she will give birth on February 28. They have reportedly booked a delivery room in one of the most exclusive hospitals on the east coast of the U.S., so her mother, Carole Sandland, who lives in Florida, can be on standby and fly up to help her care for her first child.
The decision to have their baby in NYC isn't surprising since Lauren's eight-year-old son, Adam, who she shares custody of with her ex-husband, Andrew Silverman, who she divorced in August, attends school in the city.
Simon previously admitted he hoped that his child would be born in London.
He said: "Obviously, I would have to make sure the baby has an English accent. I said to Lauren, 'What if I just play me on tape while the baby is sleeping so the baby can hear me and have a British accent and his first words will be, 'You're absolutely useless!'"
