Eric takes after his daddy


Simon Cowell‘s baby son Eric already resembles his famous father.

The X Factor boss, 54, shared an adorable Twitter photo yesterday of himself cuddling little Eric, who he and girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed on Valentine’s day.

In the super-cute shot, a topless Simon holds his boy in his lap and they sport matching aviator sunglasses – which are rather too big for Eric’s tiny face.

‘Taking after daddy,’ Tweeted Simon.

Despite waiting so long to become a father, Simon is utterly smitten with Eric.

It seems as though the couple may soon be extending their family, with socialite Lauren, 37, recently revealing Simon wants a daughter ‘very badly’.

Fans thought Simon’s snap with Eric was incredibly sweet.

‘Your smile says it all: fatherhood is the best thing to ever have happened to you :),’ Tweeted one.

Another quipped: ‘I think he wears them better 😜😎.’
