Amanda Holden: Simon will want girl next
Amanda Holden thinks Simon Cowell will be longing to have a baby girl next after welcoming his son Eric into the world in February
Simon Cowell will want a baby daughter next, according to Amanda Holden.
The 54-year-old music mogul welcomed his first child, son Eric, with Lauren Silverman in February and his 'Britain's Got Talent' co-star predicts he will want another child.
Amanda recalled Simon's sweet demeanour around her own daughters, Lexi, eight, and Hollie, two, whom she shares with husband Chris Hughes.
She said: "Simon was so cute when Hollie sat on his lap and shared a biscuit with him. Now when she sees Simon on TV, she calls him 'My Simon'. I think Simon will have more children - he'll want a girl next."
Amanda, 43, also admits she never thought she'd see the day Simon became a father.
She added to Closer magazine: "If a fairy had come along and said, 'Simon will be cradling a son this year', I would have laughed in its face. He has softened so much since he became a dad.
"I think Simon thought children and families weren't for him, but he is so happy. Simon brings Eric on set at 'BGT' and he's adorable. He has Simon's lips. He's such a good baby!"
