Simon Cowell has hinted that he would be open to starting a family with his make-up artist fiance Mezhgan Hussainy, but admitted time was against him. At 50, the music mogul just isn't sure he'd be able to hang with the little ones.

He told Oprah Winfrey: "I... you know, I worry about that because of my age. You know, when I was younger, my dad used to play soccer and, you know, games with me and I worry -- I worry that if I was 70… it worries me a bit."

The American Idol star admitted he probably doesn't have the time -- or patience! -- for a baby and joked it would be easier if a child could be born a little older.

He said: "Not that it's absolutely out of the question... if they could be born at the age of five… maybe. Maybe that will happen."

The media mogul also admitted that despite all his TV success, he still suffered periods of depression where he reflected on "horrific" past decisions he'd made. He said: "I get very, very down. I’ve made some absolutely horrific mistakes in the past."

Only recently, Simon spoke about his future plans with 36-year-old Mezhgan and claimed he was "torn" about the decision to have children.

He said: "I'm kind of torn because I'm a bit too old to have kids, but then again I think it would be important to have a lot of mes around in the future."
