The meanest man in realty television singing competitions is now a proud papa.

Simon Cowell and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Eric, on February 14th at a New York City Hospital.

According to a rep for Simon, Baby Eric weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces. “Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome,” he tweeted, and added, “Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages.”. This is the first child for Cowell, the second for Silverman, who has a 7-year old son with her ex-husbanad and former best friend of Cowell, Andrew Silerman.

Congrats to Simon and Lauren on welcoming their bundle of joy.
