Simon Cowell's girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, gave birth to their son Eric on Valentine's Day (February 14th.) According to E! Online, Simon skipped the London auditions of Britain's Got Talent to fly via private jet to New York where he met Lauren and her family at Lenox Hill Hospital. According to the London Sun, Simon's first words to his son were "I've waited all my life for you."

He's pretty much turned into all of us when our babies are born. They can't stop beaming and sharing tons of pictures! Congrats Simon, we guess it's a good thing the X Factor was cancelled so he could be home a little more now!
