Simon Cowell: 'I was born to be a dad'

Mar 5 2014, 8:30pm CST | by

Simon Cowell believes he was "born to be a dad".

The 54-year-old star welcomed his first child Eric into the world with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman last month, and he insists he always knew he'd make a good father one day.

Speaking in his first television interview since the birth on February 14, he told 'Extra's Terri Seymour: "I was born to be a dad!"

The music mogul, who has two Yorkshire Terriers Squiddly and Diddly, was reduced to tears when he locked eyes on his son for the first time and he was surprised by the immediate love he had for him.

He explained: "I actually said to Lauren beforehand, 'What if I like the dogs more than him?' -- and she said, 'You're gonna be absolutely fine,' and then literally within seconds of him being born, I got it!"

The couple named their baby boy - who was born in New York City - after Simon's late father Eric and will soon take the tiny tot over to England to meet the 'X Factor' boss' mother Julie for the first time.

Speaking about his mum, Simon said: "I think she's told the whole village ... she's really excited. I look at him, Eric, and I think of my dad all the time, so it's a really good thing."

Meanwhile, Simon has already thought about having more children as he'd like little Eric to have a brother or a sister to play with.

He explained: "I wouldn't rule out [more children]! Well, I got Squiddly and Diddly, and I couldn't imagine Squiddly or just Diddly... I had a brother when I was younger, so I kind of think it's cool to have two or three... two."

Simon Cowell is Just So Very Disappointing

Oct 14 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Look, if we're being honest, Simon Cowell is kind of a gross person. He's always seemed kind of sleazy on all his shows, with his inappropriately deep v-necks and, of course, his unnecessary meanness, and when he impregnated his friend's wife, well, that was kind of a tipoff, too. But during this new interview Simon did, in which he talked about his little baby son, he really just knocked that gr ...

The Girls of Fifth Harmony Bikini Show Off Poolside in Rio

Oct 10 2014 3:04pm CDT | Source: Egotastic.com

I'm going to be straight with you. I don't watch the X-Factor. The last all-girl band I can name for you is the 16th century Celtic ladies choral ensemble. And I'm not going to take the time to learn each of these girls names in Fifth Harmony. Not because I don't care, but because more proudly so, I'm super lazy and will wait another six months to see if Simon Cowell has grown them into something sustainable. That all being confessed, it's not l ...
