Simon Cowell is a "natural" father, according to his co-star.

Reality TV mogul Simon has recently got engaged to make up artist Mezhgan Hussainy and talked about his plans to settle down, get married and have children - and his colleague on the judging panel of 'Britain's Got Talent', Amanda Holden, thinks he will easily take to fatherhood.

The actress - who, judges the show with Simon and TV personality Piers Morgan - told New! magazine: "I've said to him that I hate it when he says he doesn't like kids because when he is around children he is great.

"Piers and I are parents but Simon seems the most natural one. I'd love to see him with kids. I'd be gobsmacked, but so thrilled."

She also jokingly suggested that the notoriously straight talking, hard to please judge, may have children who are as fussy as he is.

She added to Star magazine: "I'd love him to have children, but do we need any more Simons in this world? I mean, really?"

Speaking of Simon's relationship with Mezhgan, she told how they have become inseparable.

She said: "He's been acting teenagery and happy and light. They are like Tweedledee and Tweedledum. You can't separate them really."

Simon and Mezhgan are set to marry in the summer.
