With a baby on the way, X Factor mentor Simon Cowell declared that he was quitting smoking, but in his own words: "I lied."
Claiming electronic cigarettes "don't work," the music mogul eagerly pulled out a pack of cigarettes to light up after taping an episode of his Fox singing competition on Thursday.
"There are a lot of boring things that happen when you have a baby," Cowell, 54, told reporters with a cheeky smile. "[You have to get rid of] sharp edges, cigarettes, alcohol … then there's [baby-proofing] the toilet. But I'll have a smoking room!"

For Simon Cowell, it's the more, the furrier!
The 53-year-old introduced two new puppies he recently adopted Thursday over Twitter, asking fans, "Any suggestions for names?"
Cowell, who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, has spoken out in the past about the importance of adopting a dog rather than buying it from a pet shop. Last month, he sent out a message that he was looking to expand his family.

We're used to seeing Simon Cowell, 53, as the career-driven, hard-nosed judge on The X Factor, but recently he's given us a glimpse of his softer side.
He carved time out of his busy schedule this week to visit Lauren Silverman, 37, the woman who is pregnant with his child, in New York.
Cowell, dressed in his signature white tee, alongside Silverman who was slightly more glammed up in jeans and stilettos, stopped by the Tracie Martyn penthouse spa on Tuesday. "The couple looked relaxed and happy," an onlooker says. After receiving their treatments, "they walked out of the spa looking fresh."
