Simon Cowell's Son Eric Gets A Butler And A £200,000-A-Year Nanny


Doting dad Simon Cowell has made sure his baby son Eric's every need will be taken care of by employing a mini-army of carers – including a £200,000-a-year nanny, two maternity nurses, a nursery assistant and the butler.

No wonder the boy looks like he doesn't have a care in the world as he snuggles up with his dad and mum Lauren Silverman, 36, on a Miami beach at the weekend.

According to the Daily Star, a source revealed: "Simon has hired a top £200,000-a-year nanny from an exclusive Manhattan agency who they interviewed rigorously before selecting.


"She will live with him and Lauren and jet back and forth to London in his private jet or in first class. She will also have a wardrobe allowance.

"So far Simon has barely left his son's side but he knows he will soon be back at work full time and while Lauren is a hands-on mum he's made it clear no expense will be spared to get the best possible help."

Since Eric was born, smitten Simon has uploaded pictures and messages on to social networking site Twitter showing his devotion to his boy.

And now the X Factor and Britain's Got Talent boss now wants a brother or sister for his son.

The Daily Star source said: "Simon never wanted children originally but having Eric has made him the 'broodiest dad alive' as he said shortly after the birth.

"He's been joking he wants 'a dozen more mini-Simons' and can't wait to have another child."

Meanwhile, Simon's BGT co-star Amanda Holden, 43, said: "You can't prepare yourself for a baby like Simon thinks you can. "He's got all these plans and they're not going to work.

"Plans about where he's flying to, where he's going, where he's taking the baby.

"I just keep laughing at him. The amount of sh*t you have to take around with you when you've got a baby.

"I don't think he realised how much he was going to utterly love that child. That's what's going to destroy him.

"The fact that you would love them that much is devastating."

Simon and US socialite Lauren are planning to stay in the States for a few more weeks before flying to London as a family.
