Simon Cowell’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to a bouncing baby boy last Valentine’s day. Cowell flew all the way from London to New York when he heard that Lauren had got into labor and was by her side as his first son was born. The couple named their son Eric, after Cowell’s father.

The proud father finally gave the world a first look at his newborn son. Simon posted three black and white photos on his twitter account including himself, Lauren and Eric as they admirably watched over their newborn son. The caption read, “Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old.”

“I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.” The former X Factor judge told his twitter followers, as the 54-year-old shared a photo him cradling his son.

Another caption read, “…now you can see how very handsome little Eric is.”

Simon’s famous friends congratulated him on Twitter for this really happy news. Ellen Degeneres tweeted “What a perfect day for @SimonCowell to have his son be born. I wish you all the love in the world.” David Williams also congratulated his mate Simon, tweeting, “Huge congratulations to @Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman on the birth of their son. They named him David Sinitta Louis-Walsh Cowell.”

Congratulations on the new addition to the family!
