Simon Cowell's former flame, Sinitta, has revealed he is preparing for fatherhood by practising with a doll that cries and wets itself.
The 54-year-old music mogul and his partner Lauren Silverman are expecting a baby boy early this year, and Cowell is eagerly preparing for his first child's arrival.
His ex-girlfriend Sinitta, with whom Cowell is still very close with, revealed to The Sun newspaper: "He and Lauren got my daughter Magdalena a doll that can cry and do a wee-wee.
''It was funny watching him sitting there with it. One minute he'd turn it one way and it would start crying, then he'd turn it the other way and it would wee on him. He didn't know what to do.''

Meanwhile, Sinitta added her former flame was still trying to get used to being around babies when she shared a holiday with him and Lauren in Barbados.
She said: ''Someone handed him a baby to hold on the beach and I've never seen anything so awkward and ridiculous in my life.
''He didn't know one end from the other.''
