Simon Cowell reveals the film that baby Eric has watched ‘1000 times’

The X Factor mogul has mastered the art of having a rest while looking after his son


Simon Cowell has been taking his early morning dad duties with baby Eric very seriously. And no, we’re not talking about a morning nappy change or even getting him dressed for the day – The X Factor judge has taken over movie duties from mum Lauren Silverman. It’s a tough life, Simon. 


Lying in bed in his grey pyjamas, the 55-year-old appears to be watching through slightly closed eyes while masterfully holding the iPad up so 1-year-old Eric can watch The Lion King.

“After watching the Jungle Book 1000 times we have moved on to the Lion King,” he tweeted. Jungle Book? Count yourself lucky. There are mums everywhere who’d give their right arm for the chance to watch such a timeless classic. Spare a thought for those still caught up in the Frozen phase will you? There’s no way anyone could look so relaxed during the sing-a-long version of Let It Go. But of course, Eric’s still yet to discover Frozen

Film preferences aside, this might just be our favourite picture of father and son yet. Just look how big Eric’s got – and he seems to have inherited his dad’s dark hair. Maybe he’s another heartbreaker in the making!
