When asked if Eric ever gives Simon advice, he confessed: ‘Oh my God yes, non-stop by the way. I have a good idea what he’s going to be when older. He’s got his own opinion and he’s his own man which is really important.’
‘The great thing is when I watch the shows, when they go out I’m looking at Eric thinking does he like something? and he’s normally right,’ he added.
Simon, who previously vowed not to get married or have kids, went on to say that he was ‘late to the party’ with fatherhood but described it as the ‘best thing’ to have happened to him.
Speaking of finding balance in his life, he said: ‘I’m certainly getting there, it’s a good question actually… for sure, where I currently am in my life, my career, being a dad – I was late to the party – so it was the best thing that ever happened to me.’
