Simon Cowell welcomes baby son Eric

2014-02-15 09:12

Los Angeles – Simon Cowell is a proud new father.

A spokesperson for Cowell says he and socialite Lauren Silverman welcomed their baby son early yesterday evening in New York.

The spokesperson, AnnMarie Thomson, says the infant weighed 2.9kg and is named Eric, after Cowell’s father.

Cowell, of American Idol and The X Factor fame, posted a series of tweets about the happy event. He says the new mum is in “great shape” and describes his new son as “healthy and handsome”.

Last year, Cowell dodged questions about his relationship with the married Silverman. But he later called her “special” and said he feels good about fatherhood, something he hadn’t previously considered.

People magazine reported Silverman’s divorce from Andrew Silverman became final in New York in December.
