I'd love more children, says broody Cowell

Who could have guessed Simon Cowell would become the broodiest judge on X Factor? It seems as if the music mogul has come over all soft since the birth of his son.

Cowell - once nicknamed Mr Nasty - has taken to fatherhood since he and girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed baby Eric in February.

Now Cowell (54) has said he would love more children.

"Of course I'd like another child. You have one, and I'd always have another," he said. "I've thought about having one in between the series of X Factor."

Cowell had to break off from Britain's Got Talent auditions when Lauren (37) gave birth in New York on Valentine's Day.

NAPPY

But he admitted he has yet to change his son's nappy.

"I don't think you have to," he said. "It's like watching your girlfriend go to the loo. You don't really want to."

Newly-married Cheryl Fernandez Versini, who has returned to X Factor after four years, deflected questions on beginning a family.

Cheryl (31) sparked rumours as soon as she was married in a secret ceremony to Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini (33).

Her former Girls Aloud bandmate Nadine Coyle tweeted her, asking her to "Come join the baby club".

But the former Mrs Cole said: "New dad Simon, there's no difference."

And she joked: "I haven't changed Eric's nappy yet, but I'd be more inclined than him."
