“Mum, Dad and Eric. Now two days old,” the TV mogul captioned the first beautiful shot – a black and white photo of Lauren touching the baby’s head, while Simon holds the newborn.

“Now you can see how very handsome little Eric is,” he captioned the second photo.

In the third shot, the new dad is seen holding baby Eric on his chest. The caption reads, “I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Eric – who is named after Simon’s dad – was born early Friday evening in New York City.
