Valentine’s Day 2014 was a very special day for Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman. It was the day Lauren gave birth to Simon’s first child, a son, Eric Phillip Cowell. Happy Valentine’s Day indeed!
The baby was named Eric after Simon’s father, who passed away in 1999. That’s very sweet of Simon.
US Weekly reports that baby Eric arrived at 5:45 p.m. EST and weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces.
“Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome. Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages,” the proud dad tweeted.
Two days after his son’s birth, the X Factor mogul took to Twitter to share beautiful photos of his newborn.
“…. now you can see how very handsome little Eric is,” he captioned a beautiful photo of baby Eric.
“I never knew how much love and pride I would feel,” Cowell added.
Over the weekend, Simon tweeted: “The last three days have been incredible. Eric Lauren sqiddly and diddly all happy.”
This is the first child for Simon Cowell. Lauren Silverman also has a 7-years-old son, Adam, with ex-husband Andrew Silverman.
Congratulations to the proud parents!
