In footage shared on Terri's Instagram account, Eric and Coco danced over to the music mogul as they sang to him, much to Simon's delight.

"When he had the accident I sent him socks, Angel Delight, a book and Lego," she revealed, adding that for his birthday, she chose to send him flowers, so that Lauren could enjoy the benefits of them too.

"I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages."
