For the candid snaps, ten-year-old Eric, whom Simon shares with his fiancée Lauren Silverman, looked so grown up wearing a royal blue T-shirt and matching blue joggers.

Simon's love of dogs is well documented. In 2015, he told Glamour: "I have always loved dogs but had no idea how much happiness they would bring to my life." He is already a proud dog parent to pet pooches Daisy, Freddie and Yorkire Terriers, Squiddly and Diddly whom he shares with his fiancée Lauren.

The happy couple welcomed their son Eric into the world on Valentine's Day in 2014. Since welcoming Eric, Simon has been incredibly candid about how his life has changed for the better. "Before Eric, my life was 99 per cent work. I was obsessed with it," he admitted in an interview with The Sun, before adding: "Now Eric is around, I don't work through the night anymore. If he hadn't come along, God knows what would have happened."
