Simon Cowell Unintentionally Melts People's Hearts With His 5-Year-Old Son's First Photo On Social Media

Date March 26, 2019

Indeed, every person has a soft spot in a heart for someone special. For instance, Simon Cowell was a strict judge, a tough person, and a single man for a long time before settling down and becoming a father. He couldn't stop crying when he first held his 5-year-old son Eric, and if you read the full story, you'll cry along with him.

Simon's mini-me

A couple of weeks ago, Eric Cowell was celebrating his 5th birthday with his mother Lauren Silverman and some close friends. The more he grows up, the more he resembles both good-looking parents.

The British mogul shared the first-ever photo with his son on his Instagram page, reading an illustrated book Come Find Me. Cowell admittedly enjoys his late fatherhood, spending the whale of the time with his small, but adorable family.

Eric also loves spending time with his famous father: both at home and work. Simon has taken his only son to the auditions of X-Factor and British Got Talent several times, where Eric stole the shows.
