AManda holden and SImon Cowell

Amanda and Simon

Amanda Holden should know better than most about Simon Cowell’s plans for his baby boy – after all the pair are best friends thanks to their time on Britain’s Got Talent. 

Now Amanda has revealed that the X Factor boss will give his son a normal name, shunning the weird and wonderful world of celeb monikers that we’re so used to.

‘Simon is a traditionalist so he will go for something classy.’ she said. ‘He might even name it after himself!’

Either way, let’s hope Simon and baby mamma Lauren Silverman do better than Simon’s current nickname for the unborn child.  ‘I called it Tad because it was like a little tadpole – just, like, moving around,’ he said, having seen an ultrasound.

He added: ‘It really is a miracle. The baby was kind of unexpected. I hadn’t planned for that. But once I got used to it, I thought, it’s actually not such a big deal.’

We wonder if he’ll still think that when he’s changing nappies at 4am!
