Simon Cowell shared baby photos of his newborn son Eric just two days after he was born. The "X Factor" creator and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, welcomed their first child together on Valentine's Day. On Feb. 16, Cowell posted a few black and white shots of his new son on Twitter, sharing some of the most tender moments parents experience during the first few days of birth (via Mail Online).

"I never knew how much love and pride I would feel," Cowell tweeted along with a photo of Eric napping on his chest. Seeing this softer side of Cowell, 54, is something really enjoyable for many -- and thousands have been retweeting his sweet tweets.

The Simon Cowell baby photos are very precious and it's nice that he is sharing them with his fans. Generally speaking, people tend to think of Cowell as a very hard person who doesn't show much emotion. While his image has certainly softened since he left "American Idol" and brought "X Factor" to the U.S., Cowell hasn't completely let his guard down until now. It's clear that this baby boy has completely changed his life.

As far as the baby's name goes, "Eric" was Simon's father's name. Many thought that Simon would name his son after himself, but that didn't happen. It's unknown if baby Eric's middle name is Simon.

The fact that Simon Cowell chose to share these baby photos really shows just how much a baby can change a person. No magazine covers or over-the-top spectacles. Simon chose a simple, tasteful route and didn't want to keep Eric a secret from the world... and that right there? Says an awful lot.
