Simon Cowell and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman recently returned to the UK to introduce their five-week-old son Eric to Cowell's mother, Julie. Eric was named after Cowell's mum's late husband, giving the meeting an even more emotional touch.
A source close to the couple told the Daily Mirror: "There were some very emotional moments when she got to hold and touch Eric and his name is obviously very poignant for Julie as her husband Eric died in 1999."
Cowell revealed that he and girlfriend Lauren were planning on moving back to London after Eric's birth because of his busy work schedule. However, the pair will have to split their time between the UK and the US as Lauren's eight-year-old son from her first marriage lives in New York.
Cowell said: "Lauren knows what my work schedule is so she is cool with that and we will travel a little bit ... We made the decision to come back to the UK and she wants to live here for a while."
