He's one of the richest and most powerful men in media - but Simon Cowell gets just as nervous as the rest of us when the time comes to meet the girlfriend's parents.
The music mogul apparently had "serious nerves" before meeting Lauren Silverman's father.
The 'X Factor' boss enjoyed dinner with Silverman - who is six months pregnant with his first child, a son - her dad Stephen Davis and her stepmother Rosy in Miami, Florida last week and he was relieved they all got along well as he wanted to make a good impression.
A source said: "Simon is used to being the boss of everyone but he had some serious nerves before meeting up with Lauren's father.
"He really wanted to make a good impression.
"Stephen asked Simon about pretty much every aspect of his life. But Simon is nothing if not charming and they soon all got on like a house on fire."
During the dinner, Davis reportedly quizzed Cowell on his intentions with his daughter.
The source added to Britain's Grazia magazine: "He apparently asked Simon if he intends to make an honest woman of Lauren.
"Simon explained that being with Lauren has changed his perspective on relationships and she's really tamed him."
