Simon Cowell Cites 'People's Feelings' for Deflecting Baby Questions
"There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right," he tells PEOPLE
The X Factor judge first tried deflecting the issue with a quip. “I haven’t read the newspapers,” he said Thursday at the Television Critics Association meeting in Beverly Hills.
Then he offered a no comment: “Unfortunately at this moment I have to keep it private.”
His X Factor cohort Demi Lovato jumped to his defense. “I don’t think you have to answer that!” she said.
Cowell later told PEOPLE: “There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.
Cowell, 53, is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, 36, the wife of Cowell’s friend Andrew Silverman.
