Simon Cowell has a male in his life that is actually showing more chest than him -- and his name is Eric.
It's a pretty shocking sight for a man who by all accounts has avoided parenthood for 54 years.
Simon boasted how handsome his son is, adding, "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel."
Simon, Lauren Silverman and 2-day-old Eric posed for the pic in the NYC hospital where the kid was born.
So how do you feel today ... looking at a 2-day-old kid who will never have to work a day in his life?
