Simon Cowell Shows Off First Pics Of Baby Eric On Twitter (And He's Seriously Cute)

Simon Cowell has posted a series of arty black and white photos of his newborn son, Eric, on Twitter and, admittedly, they've got us going a bit gooey.

The X Factor supremo and his girlfriend, New York socialite Lauren Silverman, welcomed little Eric on Valentine's Day. The first twit-pic shows Simon cradling his son on his chest. He captioned it: "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel."

Then we get a close up of baby, with Simon writing: ".... now you can see how very handsome little Eric is." And he's not lying, is he?

Lastly, there's a pic of all three together looking blissfully happy, with the simple caption: "Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old."

Lauren's mother and sister were in the delivery room with the new parents in New York when Eric arrived, and Simon tweeted his arrival, explaining that he named his son after his dad.

All together now: AWWWWWW.
