Simon & Lauren Silverman

Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcome baby boy, Eric on Friday, February 14th at Lenox Hospital in New York City.

Cowell, 54 seemed jovial before entering the hospital as he spoke to reporters standing-by. This is the music moguls first child. When asked if his son would be named Simon, he simply smiled and said “we’d have to wait and see.” Well, the wait is over as Simon reportedly named his son after his late father.

Both mother and child are reportedly good. Simon later tweeted, “Very happy to say Eric was born at 17:45pm. Healthy and handsome,”  Isn’t it ironic that Simon of all people would have a child on V-Day?  I guess, stranger things have happened. Congratulations to the happy couple!
