Although Simon Cowell and Terri Seymour are no longer dating, they remain friends and often have play dates with their kids.
Cowell’s son Eric Philip, 2, is so close to Seymour’s daughter Coco that he gifted his BFF with a birthday kiss at her first birthday party recently. And as Seymour previously said, now that’s “#BabyLove.”
Over the weekend, the Extra correspondent threw her baby girl a birthday bash attended by Cowell, 56, and girlfriend Lauren Silverman, as well as Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney.
“A little kiss for the #birthday girl #Eric & #Coco #BirthdayKisses #FirstBirthdayParty,” Seymour captioned an adorable photo of the two tots.
Back in 2008, Cowell and Seymour, 41, broke up after six years of dating. Years later, the America’s Got Talent judge was linked to Silverman, 38, in 2013, while Seymour began dating Coco’s father, Clark Mallon, in 2011.
The friendly exes are also godparents to each other’s children: Seymour explained to Hello! magazine about Cowell’s plan to keep their kids friendly with one another.
“It was perfect timing with his son Eric being so young and he hoped I would have a baby girl so he could set her up with Eric and they could date,” she said during her pregnancy in September 2014.
Eric and Coco first met in April 2015, as documented on Seymour’s Twitter page. The mother of one often talks about the pair’s play dates, most recently sharing a cute stroller snap on March 6.
And just like his father and godmother, Eric is well on his way to celebrity status. He once crashed Cowell’s interview with Seymour and completely stole the spotlight.
