Smon Cowell's ex-girlfriend Sinitta has joked that she plans to corrupt his son, Eric, saying she won't be a good influence on the little one.

Cowell and current girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed Eric, their first child, in February and choose Sinitta as Godmother of the new arrival. 

Asked by OK magazine if she would give Cowell tips on juggling parenthood and career, the eighties pop star joked, "I'm going to help corrupt Eric,the way Simon helped to corrupt my children." 

"He's beautiful, adorable! His eyes are open and they're still blue at the moment." Sinitta added. "He's definitely a watcher. He sits and watches everything and takes it all in, like his father. He's a gorgeous child; he's really easy and sweet." 

Sinitta and Simon were a couple in the 1980's and have remained close friends since.  


Commenting on Cowell 'having it all' Sinitta said, "I think Simon is in his element, because he basically has it all."

This year's X Factor judging panel will be made up of Cheryl Cole, Mel B, Louis Walsh and Cowell himself.
