Bruce Springsteen may be born to run, but this poppa is born to dad!
Simon Cowell had a helluva of a day when his son Eric was born. The X Factor judge had to fly from England to New York to meet his baby momma Lauren Silverman at the hospital.
Initially Simon had reservations about the life of a father, but he realized right before his son was born - that he was born to dad!
Here's how Simon explains it:
"Phone rings at half passed five in the morning. So we had to find a flight, which we did, and I got there with two hours to spare. I held him within five minutes of him being born. 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! I was born to be a dad!"
One person that Simon Cowell thinks of while holding his son is his own dad. He said:
"I look at him, Eric, and I think of my Dad all the time, so it's a really good thing,"
As for Simon's other parent - his mom is SUPER excited to see her grandson! Or at least that is the case according to Simon! He said:
"I think she's told the whole village. She's really excited."
As for more children - Simon is NOT against having more! Even though he does consider his canines his children, too!
"I wouldn't rule it out! Well, I got Squiddly and Diddly. I had a brother when I was younger so I kind of think it's cool to have two or three…two."
We would love if Simon had more children! That would be SO amazing!
Come on, Mr. Cowell! Do it! Please?
