Lauren Silverman has revealed that she and Simon Cowell might add to their family in coming years, explaining that the ‘X Factor’ judge would like to have another baby - preferably a girl.

Lauren, the mother to Simon’s first-born son Eric, has also revealed that despite the fact he previously claimed he wouldn’t be going near any stinky nappies, Si is actually a hands-on dad.

“I would like one more [baby],” Lauren told the Mirror. “I think it will be a girl, Simon wants a girl very badly.”

Lauren, who has rarely spoken about her relationship with Simon, also explained that she had been longing for another child for a while.

The US socialite was previously married to Andrew Silverman, though the pair divorced after her relationship with Simon was revealed.

“I was never able to have a child for a long time, it’s the biggest blessing,” she explained. "With Simon I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. He’s an amazing dad, he does all the nappies, very hands-on. I love him.”

Lauren and Simon now split their time between the US and the UK.

While a number of Simon’s business ventures have been incredibly successful, the ‘X Factor’ inspired musical 'I Can't Sing' hasn't been a hit with fans and it was recently announced that the show will close after just 7 weeks on the West End stage.
