Simon Cowell apparently wants to reunite with his former fiancée and “start a family”.

The music mogul and Mezhgan Hussainy decided to go on a break earlier this year – but now Simon reportedly wants to reignite the flame.

Despite being spotted on a dinner date with former Playboy model Carmen Electra recently, it’s apparently Mezhgan the star wants to settle down and have kids with.

“Simon loves the flirty banter with Carmen, but he’s not dating her,” a source revealed to British magazine Closer.

“In fact, he’s trying to get back with Mezhgan and the big surprise is that he might actually want to start a family with her.”

Simon and Carmen first hit headlines when the pair flirted on talent show Britain’s Got Talent, where the model stepped in as guest judge.

However, Simon has now allegedly been opening up to his family about his plans for the future.

“He’s been talking with his mum and has been feeling broody lately,” the source continued.

“Out of all the women in his life, he always thought of Mezhgan as the mother of his kids.”
