Simon Cowell's lavish bash for son

Simon Cowell threw his two-year-old son a lavish birthday bash at an exclusive members-only club.

Eric Cowell - who turned two on Valentine's Day (14.02.16) - was treated to a star-studded party at London's Arts Club with his father's friends, including the 'Britain's Got Talent' panel Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams and former 'X Factor' star Louis Walsh.

Simon and Eric's mother Lauren Silverman threw the party on Saturday (13.02.15) as Simon was working on 'BGT' on Sunday.

However, he was joined at the studios by his son, who opened his presents during breaks in filming.

Simon, 56, recently admitted that while he hadn't planned to become a father, Eric has changed his life for the better.

He said: "This was not something I planned. But I remember going to the first scan with Lauren. I called him Tad because he looked like a tadpole. Something just kicked in. I felt unbelievably protective of both of them. I just absolutely wanted him. I just hadn't known that before.

"I adore my son. We make each other laugh. We play with the dogs. I've taught him to share, to say please and thank you. Whatever he has he offers it to me."

The music mogul also opened up about the death of his mother Julie last year, admitting he refused to accept she was dying.

He explained: "I wouldn't listen. I kept saying right to the end that there was hope.

"And I wasn't prepared for it. You know it all happened in my 50s. I have a son and then I lose my mother. It changes you. I'm still going through it."
