Cowell is the man behind One Direction, and earlier this year, Tomlinson launched a new record label under Syco, his mentor’s company.

Simon Cowell: ‘I Still Haven’t Changed’ My Son’s Diaper

05/27/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

Simon Cowell may have finally met his match: a dirty diaper.

Although the first-time father welcomed son Eric Philip on Valentine’s Day in 2014, he admits that he has yet to tackle that aspect of daddy duty.

“I still haven’t changed a nappy, but I love being a dad,” Cowell, 55, tells Hello! magazine of his 15-month-old baby boy.

“I never expected to be a father, but I love it. Eric makes me laugh. He and I communicate very well because we basically like the same things — Scooby Doo, Disney movies, laughing at the dogs.”

Simon Cowell experienced the downside of traveling with a baby.

The former American Idol judge, 55, took to Twitter on Thursday to single out a plane passenger who had very little patience for his 13-month-old son Eric Philip on a British Airways flight to Miami.

The fellow traveler wasn’t content sitting nearby the little one, the television host announced to his 11.6 million followers after landing in Florida.

“Just arrived in Miami. The @British_Airways team were great. Eric traveled with us but one really really grumpy man complained. A lot!” the X Factor judge Tweeted.

The irritated man took it as far as asking to swap seats. “He asked to be moved. Complained to the staff. And there was a lot of sighing and tutting,” Cowell wrote in a follow-up Tweet.

09/07/2013 at 12:00 PM ET

Simon Cowell had two reactions when he learned that he was going to be a father.

The X Factor judge, who’s expecting his first child with Lauren Silverman this winter, tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing on her talk show Tuesday that he thought, “Oh my God, this is exciting, and it’s going to be a bit of a nightmare for the next few weeks.”

He’s referring to the fact that Silverman was still with her husband, Andrew, when the baby news broke in July.

“It was kind of uncomfortable. You know, the situation,” Cowell, 53, admits. “But these things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I’m happy. I’m actually happier than I’ve ever been.”
