Handsome name .

Simon naming his son after his own father is a good sign. Sounds like Simon had a good relationship with his dad, so greater likelihood he will be a good dad to Eric also.

Seriously! People act like this is a good thing to have a baby out of wedlock with your best friends wife whom u got pregnant while she was still married to him. What the hell is wrong with people? Money does not buy class or wisdom! You people are idiots! Karma is a *****! Poor little Adam who will be left motherless when the ho takes off to live with Simon and new baby in London! So sad

I’m with you! Have people forgotten how she got pregnant by cheating on husband with his best friend! I know God will punish Simon! When you have kids, anything can happen to them and you have no control. Glad Adam has a good father since his mother is supposedly moving to London per what Simon is saying in interviews. I hope God punishes him Good!

Good grief, you can literally see the dollar signs in her beady, greedy jewish eyes? I’ll bet that she couldn’t wait for that ATM baby to poop out!

I am Simons fan to be honest He is handsome his lady is beautiful as well as there son may god bless you both for god doesn’t give what is not meant to be , may your lives always be filled with the smiles I see in your pics congrats to you both and your new baby

I wish I had something “real” to be happy about. They smile at what they have done with their lives; while I cry because my husband (good and never cheated on me) died, and I’m alone and miserable.
Everyone thinks like is a joke. God it watching; that’s why my husband is heaven. I miss him, but people like Cowel and his mistress don’t get it. People waste their lives away, and then there are people like my husband who worked hard, was loving, good and generous, not a celebrity, but better than any celebrity I know. Life is not about all these foolish games. I wish I had one more moment to spend with my husband.

I agree with Lee. Some people just think life is about fun, games, and getting thrills each day or else they don’t know how to find happiness. I found it in the love of my life until he died from pancreatic cancer, suddenly, without a warning. These celebrities are rich enough to constantly live a dream. My husband had dreams for our future, and they died with him. The reality of life is this: love one another, love God, be kind and compassionate, and learn that life is short, but that doesn’t mean you have to “live for money, and fun.” I too wish I had my loving husband back; it’s a struggle missing him and trying to live each day without him. To watch these people hurt others just because they think they can, really gets to me. Do they know that life can take away everything very quickly? I lost my love for life when I lost my love of my life, Hugo, not a celebrity, but a damn good human being.

With bad mistakes something good can come out of it!
We don’t have to remind everyone how the baby was
Conceived. My mom cheated on my dad and that is how
I was born!! The good thing was my mom didn’t have a
Abortion, my dad didn’t kick her out on the streets,
Im thankful for everything my dad has done for me.
Now I have 4 kids who are wonderful and all this came
About because my mom made a bad choice by cheating!!
I forgive her!!

Another old man having babies! A lecherous one at that. But the baby is a brand new life, so that is something to celebrate.
