X Factor judge Simon Cowell has proved he is quite the hands-on dad when it comes to son Eric, admitting he does change his baby boy's nappies from time to time.

He has been known to shy away from his daddy duties when it comes to a nappy change, but opening up about family life with Eric, Simon has now admitted he does get his hands dirty despite what people may think.

"I've changed quite a few [nappies] now," he told former flame Terri Seymour during a recent interview with Extra. We bet girlfriend Lauren Silverman is pleased!

Since becoming a dad for the first time last year, friends of Simon have said the usually hard-faced talent judge has gone soft and even he himself admitted his little boy has put him in touch with his sentimental side.

Claiming he can't believe how quickly his one-year-old son is growing up, Simon also revealed Eric is a complete mini-me of his dad.

Explaining he and his son share many of the same traits, Simon added: "He likes watching cartoons, like me, he's naughty, like me and he likes animals, like me."

It's not the first time Simon has proved how alike he and Eric are as the pair are often seen sporting a similar style, whether it's aviator shades on their heads or an entire outfit.

Last month, Simon shared a hilarious and totally adorable photo of himself and Eric in matching ensembles. While Simon is dressed in his usual white shirt and black trousers, little Eric is pictured copying his dad in a slightly more casual version.

Alongside his photo, Simon joked: "No Eric. I said white shirt not t shirt."

Pretty cute, right?

Simon welcomed son Eric with girlfriend Lauren on 14 February 2014.

Since then, he has been loving every minute of fatherhood and has even hinted more babies could be on the cards for himself and Lauren.

Admitting he wouldn't say no to expanding his brood, earlier this year the 55-year-old said: "[Eric] is adorable. Maybe I just won't make plans and see what happens. wouldn't rule anything out right now."
