Simon Cowell may have finally met his match: a dirty diaper.
Although the first-time father welcomed son Eric Philip on Valentine’s Day in 2014, he admits that he has yet to tackle that aspect of daddy duty.
“I never expected to be a father, but I love it. Eric makes me laugh. He and I communicate very well because we basically like the same things — Scooby Doo, Disney movies, laughing at the dogs.”

But Cowell and his son aren’t the only ones constantly cracking up in their home. The Britain’s Got Talent judge’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman — who is also mom to 9-year-old Adam — can barely keep a straight face in front of Cowell.
“Simon’s house is now a family home,” she shares. “I have three boys now, including him. He’s lots of fun, he makes us all laugh a lot.”
She continues, “I think Simon has changed me. He makes me laugh all the time. I can’t get angry with him because when I’m trying to be cross, he just makes me laugh.”
Although Silverman is the leading lady among her bunch, the couple are looking forward to expanding their family — hopefully with a touch of pink!
“It would be lovely to have two and, yes, I would like to have a little girl,” Cowell shares.
Fortunately, due to a mix up during Silverman’s pregnancy with Eric, the proud parents have already decided on a name for a future daughter.
“When I was pregnant with Eric I was told by the doctors he was a girl,” says Silverman. “But he just fooled them. There were a few names floating around, but we had our name picked out and it would be lovely to have a girl.”
She jokingly adds, “The only problem is that I will feel sorry for her when she is older because she won’t be able to leave the house, and no man would dare come near here because Simon would be so protective.”
