Music mogul Simon Cowell admits his baby son Eric has made him more creative in his work.

The 54-year-old X Factor boss confessed that slowing down on the business front is the last thing on his mind.

Cowell said: ''I'm not going to calm down with work! I've got the bug again and I just want to get things going with The X Factor.

''I'm excited about work again, which is a great feeling. Eric has been a big part of that. Having a child gives you perspective and it sparks new ideas and creativity.''

Cowell further admitted that he hasn't been losing any sleep since the birth of his son in February, adding: ''I'm coping really well. We've got a great baby nurse.

"Eric is a sweetheart and he's no trouble at all. He's not been keeping me up at night. He's honestly been as good as gold. I feel more relaxed since becoming a father. He's definitely relaxed me.''
