As evidenced by his response to Ryan Seacrest's question during a live broadcast of American Idol last week (Who are you winking at? My girlfriend.), Simon Cowell is in proudly in love with Mezhgan Hussainy.
Whether or not these two are engaged is still a question, but Simon's feelings for the make-up artist are not.
"You just know when you've found somebody special and I feel very, very happy," Cowell tells Piers Morgan in an interview that will air Saturday in England.
The judge, of course, will leave American Idol after this season. What else does his future hold? Possibly children.
"The thing about kids, it's like marriage, you know you have to believe you're in something that you're in for the long term, a hundred percent," Simon said, not dismissing the possibility of procreation.
The Afghanistan-born Hussainy has been seen sporting a huge diamond ring, but neither she nor Cowell will confirm if a proposal has taken place. In other Idol news:
