Simon Cowell’s first words to his baby boy were…

According to reports, Simon Cowell’s first words to his newly-born son were: “I’ve waited all my life for you.”

And we were hoping it was going to be “you definitely have the X Factor”.

Apparently the music mogul cried as he held his baby boy in his arms – so sweet! A pox on anyone who said Simon didn’t have a heart.

Baby Eric will have Philip has a middle name and it’s nice to see they didn’t go with ‘Simon’ after all.

One Simon Cowell in the world is more than enough…
