Simon Cowell Asks Ex-Girlfriend Sinitta to Be Son's Godmother

Section: Celebrity Mums

The TV personality and music mogul has asked his former flame to be godmother to his son Eric on Mother’s Day.

You may have spent some pretty memorable experiences with them (even if those experiences don’t encompass The X Factor ‘judges houses’ and song So Macho), but would you ever ask your ex to be a godparent to your child? TV mogul and music personality Simon Cowell has.

Yesterday, on Mother’s Day, Cowell asked the singer Sinitta to be godmother to his one-month-old son, Eric. Sinitta, who dated Simon Cowell on and off for around 20 years, has already made Cowell a godfather to her own two children, Magdalena and Zac, but she appeared to be ecstatic with this news, tweeting:

In the past Sinitta has blamed her break-up with Cowell on the fact that she desired a family, whereas he wanted to explore life and work without children. However, things have since changed for The X Factor judge, who has just last week said that being a dad is ‘the best feeling in the world’.

He's not the only celebrity to ask a fellow celeb to be a godparent either; X Factor winner Sam Bailey nominated Sharon Osbourne this month, the Jolie-Pitts chose Bono and the Beckhams opted for Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria for Harper Seven. In fact, celebrity babies are taking over the upcoming series of Britain's Got Talent!

So how about it? Would you ever ask your ex to be a godparent or is that crossing a bridge too far? How do you choose your godparents? Let us know in the comments box.
