Who Is Simon Cowell’s Son?
Meet Eric Cowell, the lucky firstborn of Simon Cowell, the man behind X Factor and American Idol. With a dad like Simon, Eric was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a future empire to inherit. Simon is the founder and CEO of the British entertainment company, Syco, and a successful record producer, consultant in the UK music industry, and talent scout. Meanwhile, Eric has already made appearances on several TV shows hosted by his dad, proving that he’s got what it takes to follow in his father’s footsteps.
When Eric was born, Simon was in the middle of conducting auditions for Britain’s Got Talent. But that didn’t stop him from flying to Los Angeles just to see his firstborn. According to Simon’s good friend Sinitta Malone, Simon wanted to have more children. But with his age (he’s currently 64 years old), he’s decided to stick with just one heir to the Cowell empire.
