‘Triskaidekaphobic’ Simon Cowell fears baby will be born on February 13

Simon is afraid his new baby son will be born on February 13

The 54-year-old music mogul Simon Cowell, who goes to crazy lengths to avoid the number, is terrified that his first child with pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman will be born on the unlucky date. Simon had previously admitted to hopping over the 13th step on a stairway and avoiding the numbers 13 and 67, and confessed that it is a “kind of sign of madness”. Cowell’s condition is medically known as “triskaidekaphobia”, which stems from the Christian beliefs that Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th to sit at the Last Supper table in the Bible.

On the other hand, Lauren is reportedly upset with Simon  as their “romantic vacation” turned into a “frat-house blowout”. Lauren was saddened as Simon spends most of his time with his pals, including his two former girlfriends, Terri Seymour and Sinitta. The X factor boss hardly spent time with the 36-year-old New York socialite during their extended Christmas and New Year”s Caribbean vacation as she was staying with her son and her family at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel, while he stayed in his “party central” apartment at One Sandy Lane.
