Talk about the perfect Valentine's Day present!
Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed a baby boy into the world today, as multiple sources confirm Silverman gave birth around 5:45 p.m. EST in New York City.
The child weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces and is named Eric (after Cowell's father). He is the first child for the former American Idol and X Factor judge.
News of Silverman's pregnancy broke in July, though she and Cowell remained quiet at first because Silverman was married to Simon's close friend at the time.
In October, however, Cowell told Parade that he may not be "brilliant" with babies, but he was looking forward to other aspects of fatherhood.
I think I'll be a good dad in terms of advice," Cowell said. "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."
We send this couple and its newborn all our best wishes.
