Music mogul Simon Cowell has admitted that he is a changed man since becoming a dad.

The 54-year-old X Factor boss became father to baby Eric with Lauren Silverman in February this year.

He told the new issue of Radio Times magazine: "If you'd seen me 18 months ago and said, 'Simon, back at home now you've got two dogs and a six-month-old baby,' I'd go, 'Yeah, right!'

"It was never going to happen, but it did. And I'm enjoying my life now.

"The first five months were weird. Eric didn't have a clue who I was – I could have been anybody."

Cowell added: "But the last two weeks have been good – he's started to recognise me, and as everybody knows, I demand recognition! He's a cutie."
