Ever since the always-blunt Simon Cowell and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman met their newborn baby on Valentine’s Day, the former American Idol judge has been exposing his softer side by gushing over his little man.

In a new photo shared by the 54-year-old music critic on Twitter Monday night, his 4-day-old son Ericnamed after Simon’s late-father — sleeps comfortably next to his “new friends,” a crocheted elephant and a plush puppy.

Also in the snapshot, Simon’s simple fashion taste seems to have already rubbed off on his mini-me, who is swaddled in a plain-grey blanket.

Like father, like son?
