Simon & Paula reunited!
The pair start filming on 'The X Factor.'
We always knew that Simon Cowell was one big softie.

The X-Factor creator and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, welcomed their first son together Friday. He came in at 5:45 p.m. in New York at 6 pounds and 7 ounces. The baby is named Eric Cowell.

Cowell shared the news with this tweet: “Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome. Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages. Named after my dad”

Simon posted the above pic with the following caption, “Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old.”

He didn’t stop there. The proud new father shared not one, but two more pics of his bundle of joy!

 

Will we be seeing a softer Simon Cowell in the future now that he’s a father? We will have to wait and see.
