Simon Cowell Welcomes Baby Son

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Simon Cowell is a proud new father.

A spokeswoman for Cowell says he and socialite Lauren Silverman welcomed their baby son early Friday evening, Valentine’s Day, in New York.

The spokeswoman, AnnMarie Thomson, says the infant weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces, and is named Eric, after Cowell’s father.

Cowell posted a series of tweets about the happy event. He says the new mom is in “great shape” and describes his new son as “healthy and handsome.”

Last year, Cowell dodged questions about his relationship with the married Silverman. But he later called her “special” and said he feels good about fatherhood, something he hadn’t previously considered.

People magazine reported that Silverman’s divorce from Andrew Silverman became final in New York in December.
