Simon Cowell reckons his son Eric is bound for musical stardom and he’s already showing his prowess with a drum! The proud first-time dad uploaded a video of his 7-month-old playing with a toy drum while One Direction’s Story of My Life plays in the background.

"One Direction have just hired Eric as their new drummer," he joked on his Facebook page.

The video has had over 58,000 likes, so it looks like he already has the knack of pleasing a crowd!
