London: Simon Cowell has ruled out the idea of having children as he lacks the time and patience to raise a child – with his hectic lifestyle.

According to GQ magazine, the 51-year-old TV personality, who is engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, admits he always wanted to become a father, but isn’t convinced that he would be a good father.

“Truthfully, with the schedule, the crazy hours, I don’t think it would work...” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“With the way I live my life, I wouldn’t have the patience. I’d sort of want people born at the age of 10,” he added.
