Simon Cowell was spotted practicing for fatherhood with his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman as he played with a friend's baby on the beach in Barbados.
Cowell, 54, who was wearing blue and white shorts, cooed over the baby during a romantic stroll with Silverman.
The X Factor judge looked relaxed and comfortable bonding with the child as his 36-year-old girlfriend looked on.
The pair soon continued their walk on the sand and were pictured holding hands and putting their arms around each other.
They were also stopped by a local artist selling paintings on the beach.
Earlier this week, Simon enjoyed a ride on a jet-ski and was pictured alone on the beach.
