On Sunday Simon Cowell, the ex “X Factor” judge, officially introduced his new baby boy, Eric Philip, via adorable Twitter pictures reports People. Cowell’s son with girlfriend Lauren Silverman was born on Friday, February 14, and the new dad is ecstatic.

Deadline reported earlier in February that FOX would not renew “The X Factor” after three seasons, however shortly after the cancellation of Simon Cowell’s reality TV show, the 54-year-old celebrated one of life’s greatest gifts, the birth of his son Eric. Simon Cowell shared the news on Twitter with three photographs of his baby boy who weighed in at six pounds and seven ounces according to People.

Beginning at around 7:30 on Friday night, Simon Cowell tweeted the news that his son was born.

Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome.

Simon Cowell went on to detail the happy event, which included tons of pride and who the new baby boy was named after.

Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages. Named after my dad.

The proud papa posted black and white photos of Eric, Cowell and Silverman that documented heartfelt moments, which some critics claimed couldn’t occur because Simon didn’t have a heart.

I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.

Cowell’s Twitter gush ended sometime on Sunday night when he tweeted how “incredible the last three days have been.”

Despite the birth of his new son, Simon Cowell stated in November he wouldn’t quit cigarettes, but would have his own “smoking room”. Perhaps the reality of baby Eric is enough to give the producer a change of heart on the cancer sticks.
