Simon Cowell says he “was born to be a dad” in his first interview since welcoming son Eric with Lauren Silverman last month (video below).

The music mogul confesses to “Extra” pal Terri Seymour, “I actually said to Lauren beforehand, ‘What if I like the dogs more than him?'” “And she said, ‘You’re gonna be absolutely fine,’ and then literally within seconds of him being born, I got it,” reveals Cowell. The first-time father, who admits he cried at Eric’s birth, says he “wouldn’t rule out” having more kids.

“Well, I got [dogs] Squiddly and Diddly, and I couldn’t imagine Squiddly or just Diddly,” he says. Cowell adds, “I had a brother when I was younger, so I kind of think it’s cool to have two… or three… two.” Check out the video below!
