Simon Cowell confessed that he thought he would ‘never feel love again’ after the death of his parents, but becoming a father has changed all that.

The Britain’s Got Talent star shares seven-year-old son Eric with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

His mum Judy died aged 89 in 2015 and his dad Eric, who he named his son after, died in 1999.

Simon, 61, said in a new interview that his world changed when Eric was born and he was a light in the darkness after the deaths of both his parents.

Kelly Clarkson sat down with the X Factor judge on her show and praised his new project – a series of children’s books with Eric about imaginary animals.

The singer said: ‘I love that. That’s the juxtaposition of you doing this is so great for me. You’re like a different dude with a child. I think the vulnerable little side of you came out when you had a kid.’

Agreeing, Simon said: ‘Maybe. After I lost my parents, I genuinely felt, Kelly, I would never feel that kind of love for anyone ever again.

‘I thought that was it…until I saw the scan of him for the first time.’

He recalled seeing Eric in a scan when Lauren was still pregnant – nicknaming him ‘Tad’ because he ‘looked like a little tadpole’ – and instantly becoming ‘besotted’.

The America’s Got Talent judge went on: ‘From that moment I saw the scan, I was like “That is it, I’m besotted.” Now I just cannot imagine my life without him.

‘He’s the most amazing thing that ever happened to me. I adore him.’

Simon is doing the promo rounds now he has recovered from his bike accident, in which he broke his back, as the return of America’s Got Talent approaches.

The music mogul had to undergo six hours of surgery on his spine after breaking his back, which forced him to cancel all his TV work for 2020. He underwent pool therapy and walked over 40 miles a week to help with his rehabilitation.
