‘I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.’
Simon Cowell became a proud father for the first time when he welcomed baby son Eric into the world on Valentine’s Day.
And doting dad Simon Cowell has now shared a touching first photograph of he and Lauren Silverman’s little bundle of joy.
Posting a series of artistic black and white shots on his Twitter page on Sunday evening, Simon revealed he was unprepared for how much ‘love and pride’ he would feel towards his ‘handsome’ baby son.
Alongside the photograph, he wrote: ‘Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old.’
Another shot showed the X Factor supremo affectionately patting his son’s forehead as Eric clasped onto his thumb with a firm grip alongside the text: ‘…. now you can see how very handsome little Eric is.’
A final photograph showed Simon looking every inch the proud father as his newborn son nestled into his chest with his eyes closed.
He wrote: ‘I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.’
