The couple decided that until the first trimester of the pregnancy was complete they would keep their baby news a secret to all but their nearest and dearest, who included not only Terri’s mum Margaret and her and Clark’s closest family members, but also Terri’s ex-boyfriend and best friend Simon Cowell. "We were having dinner in LA and I told him and he was over the moon.
Actually immediately after congratulating me the first thing he said was he had to be the godfather.
He was on speaker phone - it was nice because we both got to hear it at the same time - and, of course, I burst into tears. The news comes just seven months after former flame Simon Cowell welcomed his first child, Eric, into the world with girlfriend Lauren Silverman.
And Terri revealed that the music mogul - who has just celebrated his 54th birthday - was thrilled with her news."His reaction was really sweet, extremely happy for me, then he turned around to me and said, 'Of course, I obviously have to be the godfather.'"I was like, 'OK', and he said, 'I'm serious'.
Of course, the possibility of these two celebrity kids falling in love has been discussed among their closest friends. He’s told me they will date, so we’ll see what happens,” she says with a laugh.
“Eric is the most adorable, well-behaved little baby, so I’m sure he’ll grow up to be a lovely young man.” It’s no surprise that she often wonders how Cowell ended up with such a sweet baby.
and her model boyfriend Clark Mallon are thrilled to finally be able to share their happy news.
"It has been quite hard to keep it under wraps," says Terri. It’s going to become so much more real when everyone knows.
The relationship stayed amicable post-break up though.
“I’ve said to Simon before, ‘I can’t believe he’s your child!
’ because he’s been so good since he was born,” the star gushes.
As fate would have it, Seymour is due around the same time that Cowell celebrates his son Eric’s first birthday.
The celebrity exes have remained close friends since their split, and the actress is even Eric’s godmother.
