Music mogul Simon Cowell has said he will walk down the aisle with the mother of his unborn child, Lauren Silverman, if "it feels right."

The 53-year-old X Factor star has hinted that he may tie the knot with the mother of his unborn child at some point in the future.

Speaking on TMZ Live, Cowell said:  ''I'm not ruling anything out in the future. If you asked me a year ago, at my age am I going to have a baby, I probably would have said 'no' so you've just got to take each day as it comes now.

''Whatever feels right you should do.''

Cowell added that he has got used to the idea of becoming a father, saying: ''Look, these things happen. It was a little bit of a surprise. Then after a couple of days I got used to it and now I like the idea of it.

''If it's a boy there will be another me on this earth for many more years to come.''

Simon also confirmed that he has rented a $26,000 luxury apartment in Manhattan, New York, for Lauren to live in, adding: ''I did sort out an apartment for her, which she has moved into this weekend and is very happy. She feels more settled now, I think she's happy, yeah.''
