Simon Cowell Officially a New Dad at 54

Sugar Daddy Simon Cowell Officially a New DadAt the age of 54, Simon Cow­ell has offi­cially become a father for the first time. His preg­nant sugar baby, 36-year-old Lau­ren Sil­ver­man, gave birth to their baby on Valentine’s Day. The celebrity cou­ple named their new baby boy Eric, after Cowell’s late father, and they’ve already released pho­tos of their new bun­dle of joy via Twit­ter. One of the pho­tos shows Cow­ell cradling his prodigy with the cap­tion “I never knew how much love and pride I would feel,” while another shows the celebrity cou­ple ador­ing their baby boy together.

The celebrity sugar daddy is report­edly plan­ning to spend the next cou­ple weeks in New York with Sil­ver­man and lit­tle Eric before head­ing back to Lon­don to con­tinue film­ing Britain’s Got Tal­ent. Cow­ell is also said to be look­ing for­ward to bring­ing his new­born son to the U.K. to meet his friends and fam­ily, espe­cially his mother.

Lau­ren Sil­ver­man, 36, revealed that she was preg­nant with Cowell’s baby back in July 2013, but it wasn’t just their 18-year age dif­fer­ence that was shocking—Silverman was mar­ried to Cowell’s good friend, Andrew Sil­ver­man, at the time. Nonethe­less, the celebrity cou­ple has since man­aged to turn their illicit affair into a seem­ingly healthy May-December rela­tion­ship, com­plete with a new baby boy.

What do you think: Should Simon Cow­ell and Lau­ren Sil­ver­man get married?
