He’s already a proud dad to adorable little Eric,3, so it seems unsurprising that music mogul Simon Cowell hasn’t ruled out expanding his brood. When asked if he would consider having another little bundle of joy with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman the 57-year-old gave this exciting reply:
“Look I wouldn’t say no, but I had no idea [with Eric], it wasn’t planned. If I’d have sat here four years ago and said, ‘I’m going to be a dad,’ it would have been like, ‘Yeah right.’ And even if I’d have said yes, I would have said at the time, ‘I’m not sure I’ll be a great dad because I don’t know what to do’ ”
But it seems that the dad-of-one is in no rush to turn his family of three into a family of four, despite admitting that he feels “happier than I’ve been in years.” Continuing he added:
“Both Eric and Lauren are a big part of that… After about a year and a half you create this connection and it’s very difficult to describe. You always think the biggest love you’ll ever have is for your family and for your parents.
“You don’t understand what it is like to be a mum or a dad until you have a son or a daughter. It is beyond anything I have ever experienced. It’s incredible. It does make you a happier person.”
