Simon Cowell has introduced his baby son to his mother for the first time.

The TV mogul and his partner Lauren Silverman took five-week-old Eric - who is named after Simon's late dad - to see his mum Julie at her home in the UK, in what a source said was an "emotional" visit.

It was the first time the 88-year-old had met her grandson since he was born in the US in February.

An insider told the Daily Mirror: "It was a lovely visit from Simon and Lauren and Julie was thrilled.

"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."

Simon, 54, and Lauren had been spotted earlier this month picking up a passport for Eric in Miami, so that they could fly him to England to meet his grandma.

The couple welcomed Eric on Valentine's Day and the X Factor boss recently told Extra that he felt he was "born to be a dad".
