Baby Eric was born on Friday, February 14, weighing 6 pounds and 7 ounces. He was named after Cowell's late father. Cowell gave an update of the baby, tweeting on Sunday, February 16, "The last three days have been incredible. Eric Lauren sqiddly and diddly all happy." Sqiddly and Diddly are Cowell's pet pooches.

Back in October 2013, Cowell confessed that he's dreading to welcome a baby. "I'm not brilliant with babies," the TV personality told Parade magazine. "I never know what to do. But [once he's older] I think I'll be a good dad in terms of advice. And then I'll get to do all the things I want to do, like go to Disneyland or Universal Studios, teach him how to drive -- I love all that."
