In a new interview with HELLO!, The X-Factor star Simon Cowell dishes on diaper duty and family life with girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their son Eric, 15 months.
On fatherhood: “I still haven’t changed a nappy, but I love being a dad. I never expected to be a father, but I love it. Eric makes me laugh. He and I communicate very well because we basically like the same things — Scooby Doo, Disney movies, laughing at the dogs.”
On having more children: “It would be lovely to have two and, yes, I would like to have a little girl.”
Lauren – who is also mom to 9-year-old Adam – on their happy family: “Simon’s house is now a family home. I have three boys now, including him. He’s lots of fun, he makes us all laugh a lot. I think Simon has changed me. He makes me laugh all the time. I can’t get angry with him because when I’m trying to be cross, he just makes me laugh.”
Lauren, on thinking Eric was a girl: “When I was pregnant with Eric I was told by the doctors he was a girl. 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. The only problem is that I will feel sorry for her when she is older because she won’t be able to leave the house, and no man would dare come near here because Simon would be so protective.”
In the pics, the actress, 39, and her 7-year-old daughter Ever are seen posing with newborn daughter Dashiel at the tot’s traditional Russian Orthodox baptism.
The ceremony took place Friday at the Holy Transfiguration Russian Orthodox church in Los Angeles.
Then on Saturday, the Zoolander star posted a few black-and-white photos from the event.
“Dashiel’s baptism yesterday was incredible! Such a gorgeous ceremony, so peaceful and spiritual. Thank you to the very special godfather @chrissbrenner for this stunning pic of my two beauties! #evergabo #dashieledan #ladiary,” the proud mom captioned the image of both daughters.
Younger star Hilary Duff stepped out with her son Luca, 3, in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Tuesday (May 26).
The Lizzie Maguire alum, 27, kept it casual in an all black outfit while running some errands with her only child.
The single mom recently dished on Hollywood’s unrealistic beauty standards.
“There’s so much pressure to always have it together, and I’m not falling for it,” Duff said. “You see supermodels who have babies, and the next week they look as if they were never pregnant. That was not the case with me. Some days I feel great, others I feel pretty normal, and that’s acceptable.”
The proud mom recently shared some sweet shots of her preschooler on Instagram. Look through our gallery to see the precious pics.
Mom-of-two Jessica Alba covers the June issue of Shape and opens up about her fitness routine and how motherhood has increased her overall body image.
On how motherhood improved her body image: “I wasn’t truly confident about my body until I had my daughters, Honor, 7, and Haven, 3. I felt more comfortable in my own skin after they were born. Plus, if I want them to be happy with their bodies, I need to walk the walk.”
On her workout routine: “I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done. When I only have 30 minutes, I’ll do a series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations. But I’m not going to lie. Working out sucks. Which is why I love taking classes, because I’m surrounded by other people and that keeps me motivated and accountable. These days, I do power yoga with light weights in a 105-degree room, so it’s a mix of hot yoga and strength training. I also spin. The key for me is good music, like 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyoncé.”
On her must-have snack: “I’m addicted to popcorn. I eat it throughout the day. I’m a scatterbrain with lots of things to do at once, and eating popcorn helps me concentrate. It’s my way of dealing with my mind wandering off.”
