Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell won't let baby Eric win

Simon Cowell admitted he will be competitive with his son.

The media mogul - whose girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to baby Eric in February - has claimed being a father won't change his winning mentality, and he joked he'd rather teach his boy to ''cheat'' rather than let him win.

He told the Daily Mail Weekend magazine: ''If we were playing Monopoly and you were winning I'd have to tip to the table up because I'd think, 'What's the point in playing if I'm going to lose?' ... I don't know about [letting Eric win]. I think I'll have to teach him to cheat.''

Simon, 54, revealed he will probably be a ''total softie'' when it comes to his son, leaving his partner to be the strict parent.

He said: ''My dad was a total softie with me. my mum was the disciplinarian, so I'll probably be exactly the same.

''I'm looking forward to doing the fun stuff - teaching him to go-kart, watching all the movies I used to watch, the cartoons. I don't think I'll be able to do the telling off.''

Meanwhile, it is said Simon's competitive streak shone through during a recent go-karting trip for Syco Records employees after he did all he could to ensure he emerged victorious.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It was hilarious seeing how seriously Simon took it ... There was no let up from him during the racing, and he had no qualms about bumping down people he works with - even women - so he could get pole position.''
