If you’ve been on Twitter recently, you may have notice that certain big cheese in the music industry has been flooding social media with uber-cute snaps of him and his son.

Yep, former Mr.Nasty of talent shows, Simon Cowell, is now a loving family man and doting dad – who’d have thunk it!

And Simon can’t resist sharing snaps of him and his son with the world – and we don’t blame him! Little Eric is as cute as a button.

The pair not only look like the spitting image of one another but with father and son often pulling the same facial expressions or wearing identical outfits, they’re like two peas in a pod!

Simon and girlfriend Lauren Silverman have headed off to the sunny side of Spain for a bit of R&R. Well, we don’t blame them, what with the madness of The X Factor starting soon when it’s back on our screens later on this month.

And with the ultra-sweet picture perfect photo of their family, it may have been the 55-year-old music mogul and girlfriend Lauren who had matching sunnies, but it’s the double act between Eric and dad Simon that’s melted our hearts.

Like the time Eric was munching on watermelon, and Eric looked pleased with his tropical snack as Simon did that he had such a cutie on his lap.

Or when Eric and Si had matching white shorts on while sailing the shores of Sardinia, and Eric told his dad who was boss and ran things around here. Yeah – we KNEW that Simon didn’t really rule the roost back at home!

And then, there’s the latest where both Simon and Eric were both looking out into the ocean blue abyss – we think that Simon was thinking who he was going to put in his new multi-million-earning boyband, while Eric was thinking when he was going to have his next rice cake. Both VERY important ponderings of life.

We LOVE seeing this new softie side of Si – keep posting those pics!

Aww! Cheryl’s relationship with Simon Cowell is so sweet!
