Simon Cowell Posts Video Of Baby Eric Playing The Drums

Section: Celebrity Mums

The proud dad has shared a clip of his son Eric having fun at a baby music class

Since Simon Cowell’s partner Lauren gave birth to their first son together in February, we haven’t seen a huge amount of the newborn. So when Si posted a video of his tiny tot playing the drums last night, we couldn’t wait to see how much Eric looks like his music mogul dada.


Sporting his dad’s dark locks and a similar monochrome dress sense, we can definitely spot some similarities… (including that cheeky smile).

The proud dad posted the clip to his Facebook page, writing, ‘One Direction have just hired Eric as their new drummer.’


One Direction’s hit Story of my Life can be heard playing in the background and Simon’s baby son is obviously a fan as a huge grin appears on his face when he realises which track it is.

The video post has already had almost 35,000 likes and over 1,000 comments – ranging from how quickly ‘Simon Junior’ is growing up to how cute he is.

You can watch the 14 second video on Simon’s Facebook page.
