London: Simon Cowell has revealed that he plans on being a `big softie` to his newborn son Eric, just like his own dad.

The 54-year-old music mogul plans on leaving his girlfriend Lauren Silverman to be the disciplinarian and be a `total softie` himself.

The ` Syco ` boss, who welcomed his first child in February, joked that he would rather teach his boy to cheat rather than let him win.
