Cowell: Eric is 'handsome like his dad'

Simon Cowell has shown off his son Eric in a new series of pictures he has posted online - and boasted he was "handsome like his dad".

The X Factor boss ­became a father for the first time in February when his girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth.

Cowell shared the pics with his followers on Twitter, showing the 11-week-old in a striped babygro, with one of the images depicting him in Silverman's arms, staring at her face.

He told his fans: "My little boy Eric is healthy and happy."

And in a caption to ­another of the images, in which Eric appears to be clambering on a sofa in a sunlit apartment, he wrote: "Very handsome like his dad."

Cowell said he was ­travelling back to the UK from his Los Angeles base, adding: "Hope you are enjoying Got ­Talent. Next week's show has a very special audition."

The next heat of the programme on Saturday also coincides with the ­final night of his X Factor musical I Can't Sing! which has proved to be a huge box office flop.

The London Palladium production, which had months of publicity ahead of its launch, is closing a little over six weeks after its official opening night.
