I will have a smoking room when my baby arrives: Simon Cowell

Los Angeles: Media mogul Simon Cowell plans to create a space in his house where he can puff on cigarettes without harming his new born baby.

The 54-year old `X Factor` boss, who is expecting a child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, reveals that he tried switching from tobacco to electronic cigarettes but to his disappointment, they did not seem to be useful, reported People magazine.

"There are a lot of boring things that happen when you have a baby. (You have to get rid of) sharp edges, cigarettes, alcohol... Then there`s (baby-proofing) the toilet. But I`ll have a smoking room!," Cowell said.

Lauren, who is the estranged wife of his friend Andrew Silverman, is due with Cowell`s child in February.
