Carmen Electra had ''so much fun'' with Simon Cowell.

The former 'Baywatch' star enjoyed a three-month romance with the music mogul - who has five-month-old son Eric with girlfriend Lauren Silverman - from December 2012 and says he was ''awesome and very charming'' during their time together.

She told Loaded magazine: ''I just thought Simon was so much fun and was so smart and he's really interesting.

''I think he's awesome and very charming. He has such a great sense of humour and I honestly think he's going to be an amazing father, I truly do.''

And Carmen thinks little Eric will grow up to take over his father's showbiz empire.

She added: ''I'm sure little Eric Cowell will get a lot of knowledge of entertainment and business. He'll absolutely have to take over the family empire. I can see it. I can picture him doing that.''

Simon has previously said he plans for Eric to inherit his company in the future.

He said: ''In all seriousness, he's going to do what I do. In time he's going to inherit my business. That's certainly the plan.''
