Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell looked after son on his own

Simon Cowell has looked after his son on his own for the first time.

The media mogul - whose girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to Eric in February - was ''left alone'' with his baby when she visited family in New York, and it is said he coped ''really well''.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: ''Simon was a bit nervous about being left alone with Eric at first but in reality he has nannies to help, so it's not been too bad.

''He's actually risen to the challenge very well. When Eric has a tantrum he finds it very amusing - it sort of reminds him of being in the ['Britain's Got Talent'] judging panel.''

Simon is a first-time father but he's settling into his new role despite having ''never even held a baby before''.

His friend and former girlfriend Terri Seymour recently said: ''He's great actually. I mean he hasn't changed his lifestyle because Simon wouldn't.

''But he's very good. He'd never even held a baby before, so he was like, 'How do you hold a baby?'

''You have to remind him every now and then about the head... But he's really good and he loves it.''

Simon's little Eric has caused him to learn many things, and not just how to take care of a baby on your own, but why you actually get to the point that you want to do so!!! I'm so proud of and for him. I can see him getting amused at Eric's tantrums, and the baby getting soothed by his response. He's going to be a great Dad!!!
