ERIC, Simon Cowell’s adorable son, enjoys the spotlight just like his famous father.
But when did Simon’s minime join his music mogul dad on The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent? Here’s what we know…
Who is Eric Cowell?
Eric Cowell, 6, was born February 14, 2014, and is the first child of Simon Cowell.
His mum is Simon’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman.
Shortly after he was born, HOAR revealed that his godmother is Sinitta, a singer, who was previously in a relationship with the music mogul.
In April 2019, Simon admitted that he had thought about calling the young boy ‘Simon’ but chose to name him after his own dad – Eric Selig Phillip Cowell.
What plans does Eric’s dad Simon Cowell have for his son?
On April 12, 2018, HOAR exclusively revealed that Simon has plans for Eric to one day take over his business – including becoming a Britain’s Got Talent judge.
The music mogul has been secretly mentoring Eric since he’s been able to walk, and believes he’ll be the only candidate to take over the reins.
He told us: “I look at things through his eyes now.
“I want to spend more time with him. I’m lucky because he likes the shows, so he comes down to them with me. I’m sort of training him up.”
When has Eric Cowell been on TV?
On October 14, 2017 Eric again melted hearts, this time on X Factor, when he helped out his superstar dad.
During the episode he was seen taking some satsumas from his famous father during the Six Chair Challenge.
On April 22, 2018 Eric completely stole the show on Britain’s Got Talent by making a surprise appearance on the panel.
Simon’s adorable son was excited about sitting in his seat at the panel and told Amanda Holden that he would be a really good judge.
When asked what Simon’s job was Eric cutely said: “I am daddy’s job now.”
On May 21, 2018 Eric managed to upstage Simon during an interview on Loose Women.
The tot was seen gatecrashing the interview when he jumped on to his dad’s lap before trying to clip a peg on to his nose.
As Simon cried out in pain, Robbie Williams’ wife Ayda Field, who was doing the interview, asked the youngster who the best judge on Britain’s Got Talent was.
