There was a time when Simon Cowell had the world convinced he was heartless but that perception of him has rapidly changed since the birth of his son, Eric.
Cowell and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed their baby boy in February 2014 and on Tuesday he gave the world a glimpse of their family life.
Taking to Twitter, Cowell shared an adorable picture of his family on holiday. The snap shows himself and Silverman smiling into the camera, while their 17-month-old toddler sits between them, seemly uninterested in the family photo.

According to the Daily Mail, the family are on holiday in Ibiza, Spain — and their tanned skin is perhaps an indication that they’re enjoying the sunshine — but one thing’s for sure Cowell’s fans are thrilled that he has shared his holiday photo with them.

This is not the first picture of his little family that Cowell has posted on social media though and, judging by the pictures that the X Factor boss regularly posts, he is a doting dad.

Speaking about his son during an interview with E! News earlier this year Cowell revealed that he is loving fatherhood.
“I love being a dad,” Cowell told the publication. “It’s been easy and I cant (sic) believe its a year already. It’s gone by, like, snap, but he’s a fantastic little boy.” Awww.
Isn’t it amazing how becoming a parent can change someone?
