Is Simon Cowell a changed man!? The 54-year-old, who has gained a reputation as being very harsh and critical, showed off his soft side following the birth of his son on Valentine’s Day.
The X-Factor judge’s girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, gave birth to the couple’s son, Eric, who weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces. On Sunday, Simon took to Twitter to share some photos of the baby.
In an adoring picture of himself cradling the two-day-old, he wrote, “I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.”
Simon also included a photo of he and his lady gazing at their baby, adoringly. “Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old,” he wrote. “…. now you can see how very handsome little Eric is.”
Over the summer, Lauren’s pregnancy made headlines because, at the time, she was married to Andrew Silverman, a friend of the former American Idol judge! They got divorced in August.
“The last three days have been incredible,” Simon tweeted on Sunday night. “Eric Lauren sqiddly and diddly all happy.”
