Simon Cowell: We Got Enough Baby Shower Gifts for '100 Kids'
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell didn't attend girlfriend Lauren Silverman's baby shower last Sunday, but he certainly took note of the impressive haul of gifts she scored.

"I wasn't there. I wasn't invited, literally," the music producer, 54, said Thursday at an X Factor press conference in Los Angeles.

But he did have a peek at the stacks of presents afterwards. "There were a lot of them," he admitted. "There were a lot of clothes. It looks like I'm having 100 kids right now, there are so many."

Cowell and Silverman are expecting a boy in February. He'll be well-dressed, that's for sure – but will he follow his father into the music business?

The X Factor judge said he would approve of his son becoming a musician – on one condition. "As long as he signed a lifelong recording contract with me, I'd be all right with that. No options," Cowell joked.

The parents-to-be are planning a Caribbean getaway for Christmas. And a source has told PEOPLE that Cowell is likely to propose to Silverman now that her divorce from Andrew Silverman has been finalized.
