What a way to tell someone you love them then by delivering a Valentines Day baby!
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman welcomed their son into the world today (Feb. 14) at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. A source told E! News, the couples little bundle of joy weighed in at 6 pounds 7 ounces.
When the 36-year-old went into labor early this morning, Cowell was by her side the entire time, even skipping out on Britain’s Got Talent auditions in London. Clearly his priorities are in line!
So what did they name the little guy?
“Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome,” Simon shared with his 9.4 million twitter followers and then added, “Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages.”
He even included that baby Eric was named after his father, Eric Selig Phillip Cowell, who has passed away.
So, Mr. Simon Cowell has a big heart… who knew?
Congratulations are definitely in order for the couple and their Valentines Day baby.
