Entertainment mogul and Sugar Daddy Simon Cowell, 54, had his world turned upside down in July 2013 when news broke that the Sugar Baby he was having an affair with – 36 year-old Lauren Silverman, was expecting their love child. The media attention was amplified by the fact that his Sugar Baby was married to Andrew Silverman at the time – a close friend of Cowell’s.
“I regret that part,” he admits. “But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kinda go ‘this is what happened from it’.
But now you won’t find a prouder father than Cowell, who dotes on his first child, a son called Eric born appropriately onValentine’s Day.
The 54-year-old is known for keeping his personal life private, but he recently posted an adorable snap of him with his mini-me son Eric on Twitter.
With his cute son perched on his lap in matching sunglasses, Cowell captioned the image: ‘Taking after daddy.’
Simon, like many Sugar Daddies who become fathers later in life, is taking fatherhood in his stride: ‘It’s not that difficult – if you’ve got a good [partner], who I’ve got, it’s a lot of fun. It’s easier than I thought.’
Silverman celebrated her birthday in style with her Sugar Daddy last month, taking a break with her two sons (one from her previous marriage) and friends in the Hamptons. And of course as any good Sugar Daddy would, Cowell made sure he showered his Sugar Baby in bling for her birthday.
