Love is in the air for American Idol alum Simon Cowell and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, a romance only solidified by the birth of Simon’s first child, son Eric, on Valentine’s Day 2014.

The couple has been keeping a low profile since welcoming their bundle of joy but just recently made their first post-baby red carpet debut. Simon looked dapper in a fitted black suit but Lauren was the real show-stopper. The Manhattan socialite and ex-wife of Simon’s old friend Andrew Silverman wore a beautiful little black dress with a zipper detail around the waist and down the leg, grounding the look with a pair of black pumps.

The notoriously nasty music mogul and former competition show judge has been showing a softer side since becoming a family man. We were especially surprised that Simon gushed to the media about how in love he is with his son.

"I was born to be a dad!" the 54-year-old said of his son, who is named after Cowell's late father. "I look at him, Eric, and I think of my dad all the time, so it’s a really good thing."

Who would’ve thought that having a baby would be the one thing needed to tame this wild mouthed beast? We couldn’t be happier for the couple and we wish them all the best!
