Simon Cowell really is a changed man after welcoming his baby son Eric with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman last year. And despite previously admitting that he has never changed a nappy and never will, it seems the music mogul has started to embrace the less glamorous side of parenting.

When asked by his ex and long-term friend Terri Seymour whether he had changed a nappy yet, Simon responded: "Yes, quite a few Terri."

The 55-year-old was speaking to the presenter during an Extra TV interview in Los Angeles, where Simon is currently spending some quality time with his American girlfriend Lauren and their son.

Simon Cowell has previously said that he would leave diaper duty to the nanny

The couple's baby, who is named after Simon's late father Eric Selig Phillip Cowell Sr, was born on Valentine's Day in 2014.

Shortly after the birth, the Britain's Got Talent judge confessed that he wouldn't be getting his hands dirty with diaper duty, telling Sky News: "I feed Eric, I talk to him and play with him, but I don't think dads do changing nappies. I'll leave that up to the nanny."

Simon also admitted that he never expected to be a father but that he loves it – and has a very special bond with his first-born.

Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell have revealed they would like to have a daughter

"Eric makes me laugh," the London-born star told HELLO! magazine last month. "He and I communicate very well because we basically like the same things – Scooby Doo, Disney movies, laughing at the dogs."

The X Factor judge also likes to regularly update his social media followers with adorable snaps of Eric, hanging out with his dad, enjoying bath time and watching films. One recent Twitter photo showed Eric leaning against Simon's chest, focused on his dad's tablet.

"After watching The Jungle Book 1000 times we have moved on to The Lion King," Simon captioned the snap.

The doting dad and his beautiful girlfriend also admitted that they would like to have a second child – hopefully a daughter – and already have names picked out for her.

"I think if you have one child, it would be lovely to have a girl," Simon told HELLO! magazine.

"When I was pregnant with Eric I was told by the doctors he was a girl," added Lauren. "But he just fooled them. There were a few names floating around but we had our name picked out and it would be lovely to have a girl."
