Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell and his fiancée Lauren Silverman dote on their ten-year-old son Eric, who celebrated his birthday on Valentine's Day. The youngster was named after Simon's music executive father, who passed away in 1999.

Simon and Lauren welcomed their son on 14 February 2014 and the star has talked openly about how having a child has changed his life, and whether he's open to having more children in future.  

The impresario occasionally shares photos with his mini-me son on social media and sometimes allows Eric to pose with his parents at premieres or behind the scenes at his dad's work. Here's ten of the sweetest photos of the little boy...

Simon labelled a birthday photo of his son "a perfect day" as the two laughed in harmony (and of course, cuddled a canine companion).

The pair announced an exciting venture

Early in 2020, Simon and Eric announced that they'd signed a seven-book deal for their Wishfits series about a range of magical hybrid animals, but its release later had to be pushed back. 

The star wrote:  "WISHFIT is a world where the most unusual animals exist. The WISHFITS are magical, unusual and have evolved in a weird and wonderful way, combining two different species to form hybrid animals with very distinct characteristics!"

He added: "To be able to write a series of books with my son Eric has been magical. This idea was inspired 3 years ago by a very special friend of ours who runs a Children’s Hospice charity. I told her one evening about some of the funny animals my son Eric and I would invent, starting with the Cog and the Dat. 

And how every evening the two of us would think of the most unlikely animal we would like to have as a pet. She loved this idea so much she encouraged me to turn this into a book series."
