    Simon Cowell opened up about his engagement to makeup artist Mezghan Hussainy during an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Monday night, and the "American Idol" judge also revealed he is thinking of one day becoming a father.

    Jay asked Simon to set the rumors straight about his reported engagement not long after the interview began.

    "Well, I do have somebody in my life now Jay, yes," Simon said. "And I kind of made a decision this year to make somebody happy so that's how I…it's called giving back."

    Simon revealed he bought Mezghan's sparkler on his side of the pond.

    "I was asleep I think. No, look I bought her the ring in London," the Brit revealed.

    When asked about when he'll finally tie the knot, Simon gave a date range.

    "Within the next 10 years," Simon laughed.

    While Simon tried not to share too many details, Jay did manage to get the British judge to confirm he is thinking about having little Simons.

    "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 me-s around in the future," Simon noted.

    Simon was also joined on stage during his appearance by Mezghan. Tune into "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Monday night for the full interview.
