Simon Cowell Shares Pics Of His Baby Boy

By: Lindsay McCane - May 7, 2014

Simon Cowell and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman received the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift this year.

On February 14, 2014, the couple welcomed their first child, a son, Eric, whose full name is Eric Selig Phillip Cowell, after Simon’s father who passed away in 1999. “I look at him, Eric, and I think of my Dad all the time, so it’s a really good thing,” Simon said, during an interview with Extra.

Simon shared the news of his son’s birth, via Twitter, and later added several photos of his new pride and joy. Now, nearly three months later, Simon is, once again, sharing photos of his little man.

Simon first informed his followers that Eric was happy and healthy, and then he proceeded to share a series of three pictures. The first shows Eric laying in Lauren’s lap wearing a striped onesie and covered in a blanket.

The second picture shows little Eric holding himself up, leaning against the back of the couch. There is no denying that Eric resembles his father, and it appears that Simon thinks so too. He captioned the photo by saying: “Very handsome like his dad.”

The third, and final, picture showed Lauren holding Eric, with them staring into each other’s eyes. Simon simply captioned this photo by saying: “Mum and Eric.”

Many people were skeptical about how Simon would handle the responsibilities of fatherhood; however, Simon said he was born to be a father. “I held him within five minutes of him being born,” Simon said. “I actually said to Lauren beforehand, ‘What if I like the dogs more than him?’ And she said, ‘You’re gonna be absolutely fine.’ And then literally within seconds of him being born, I got it!” He added: “I was born to be a dad!”

    That baby is a reminder of a woman who cheated on her husband with his friend, got pregnant to get her claws into the super-rich man’s fortune. SHAMELESS! Please dont flaunt adultery like this! And so sad for her firstborn who is tossed aside by a mother who spends more time with another man and the kid conceived through adultery.

      Judgmental aren’t you? You don’t know these people only what you read in the tabloids.

    What have we become that we glorify bad behavior. Unfortunately all glits and glitter is to the camera and not behind the scenes. Rough life ahead for all, yet everything helps when you have money. Extremely bad messages to the young as many things in Hollywood nowadays are things not to do, but we glorify them. We have no morals.

      no–this has nothing to do with OUR morals–it is about the lack of morals of Lauren and Simon. She still sounds like a gold digger who dropped her own son like a hot potato because she had his replacement in her womb. Way to stab your husband and son in the gut–just because Simon was willing to play house with his best friend’s wife.

    He sure does look like the husband and not Cowell. Cute baby nonetheless.
