Simon Cowell's son has inherited his hair
Simon Cowell's newborn son has inherited his hair.
The media mogul welcomed his first child, with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, last week and friend, 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Bruno Tonioli, has revealed the youngster has a thick head of black hair like his dad.
The 58-year-old dancing expert thinks the child - who was named Eric after Simon's father - will have such luscious locks that he could even land himself a role in a shampoo advert when he's older.
Bruno said: "That baby will not be follically challenged. It might even get a L'Oreal advert or two. Simon has great hair. In his 20s he had fantastic looks."
Bruno - who's been friends with 'The X Factor' judge for 30 years - hopes Simon won't influence his son's future haircuts, and make him get his infamous square style which is regularly mocked by his pals including comedian David Walliams and 'X Factor' USA judge Demi Lovato.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's his haircut - he can't give that haircut to a child!"
Simon - whose hair has just started to grey - took Eric to a business meeting this week and the proud dad has been showing off his newborn to all his friends, family and colleagues.
A source said: "Baby Eric came along two weeks early so Simon still had meetings he was going to attend.
"As the birth went relatively smoothly, he decided to keep the appointments and asked Lauren to bring him along to him show off."
