Well, at least he was worried about it, that's something...
Speaking of Baby Eric (named after his father, in case you didn't know) coming into the world, Simon said: "I wouldn't rule out more (children). Well, I've got (his Yorkshire terriers) Squiddly and Diddly, and I couldn't imagine Squiddly or just Diddly... I had a brother when I was younger, so I kind of think it's cool to have two or three... two." Yep, best say "two" until you check with the missus.
Apparently Simon cried when Eric was born, which must have been something of a relief to all involved: "I actually said to Lauren beforehand 'What if I like the dogs more than him?', because I've never had a baby before, and she said 'You're gonna be absolutely fine', and then literally within seconds of him being born, I got it." He still reportedly lets the dogs like baby Eric's face, but sure baby steps.
In the interview with his ex missus, Terri Seymour on Extra said of life since the baby was born: "Lauren's actually been crying more than Eric, so I've had to put one of those pacifiers in her (um, where exactly) which she likes... has to be fed every three hours, otherwise she gets a little bit grumpy, and Eric's absolutely fine!"
