A Son is Born – to Simon Cowell on Valentine’s Day!
He’s the British media and music mogul and reality show boss who recently bowed out of X Factor USA to return to the UK’s version of the hit talent show, but now Simon Cowell has another role – that of 54-year-old first-time dad.
The pop supremo’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman, who’s 37, gave birth to a son two weeks before her due date early in the evening of Valentine’s Day at Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan where Beyoncé gave birth.
The baby, tipping the scales at 6lb 7oz, has been called Eric after Cowell’s own father, who died in 1999 and was also a music industry executive.
Cowell Jr skipped the last day of Britain’s Got Talent auditions in London, got on a plane and crossed the Atlantic on the first commercial flight he could catch.
He told reporters outside the hospital: “Lauren is doing great. The baby is due any second now.”
He then took to Twitter to share his news.
