Sinitta is excited about spoiling Simon Cowell's baby Eric.

The 'So Macho' singer - who previously revealed she aborted the 'X Factor' boss' baby in the 1980s - is thrilled that the music mogul and his partner Lauren Silverman have asked her to take on the important role in their two-month-old son's life and is looking forward to seeing her children, Zac and Magdalena, bond with the tot.

She said: ''I feel so honoured. To think I will watch Eric grow up and know him all his life. He'll play with my children too. I feel very protective - and I shall spoil him rotten.

''When I adopted my children they weren't babies so to be able to choose tiny outfits for Eric is wonderful. As much as I'd like to dress him up in baby Gucci we will definitely have our jeans and T-Shirt moments tumbling around in the park.''

After she was asked to be godmother she text Simon and was ''touched'' by his response.

She explained to Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I was touched by Simon's response. He said, 'I want all of our children to grow up together. I adore you and Magdalena and Zac and want us all to stay close.'''
