Simon Cowell
told Fox News he isn’t proud of how the relationship with baby mama, Lauren Silverman started, but does feel his life has changed for the better.

Lauren finalized her divorce from Andrew Silverman, one of Simon’s closest friends, last November.

She and Simon welcomed their son Eric in February, and are now raising him together in Simon’s West London mansion.

Simon, who is happy being a father says, “I was born to be a dad.”

However, when asked about the affair with the wife of one of his closest friends, he says, “I regret that part.”

– “But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kind of go, ‘This is what happened from it. … It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened.”

He went on to say, “You have to deal with it and man up to it. You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism,” Cowell says. “My life has changed, but I am probably more focused on what I am doing now than I was a year ago. Maybe because it puts things in perspective having two people in my life who I am responsible for. … Now the house is full of people, it has become a home rather than a house.”

Well, I guess that’s one way to look at it.
