Simon Cowell just released several photos of his newborn son Eric and girlfriend Lauren Silverman on his Twitter page, and these pretty much just made us melt.

"Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old," Simon captioned the photo of the trio. For the solo shot of his little boy, Simon added, "now you can see how very handsome little Eric is," and in the shot of the two together he wrote, "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel." Last night we spotted Simon visiting Lauren and Eric at the hospital, and it seems as though everyone is now back at Lauren's Park Ave apartment.

We never thought we'd see the guy who ripped people to shreds on American Idol and The X Factor looking so mushy and sweet!
