Proud of his family's latest addition, Simon Cowell gave a suave thumbs-up to fans in New York City today (February 15).

Standing outside Lenox Hill Hospital, the "X-Factor" host wore his usual ensemble, featuring a white tee and jeans, covering up with a long gray coat and scarf.

Simon and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman welcomed their baby boy, Eric into the world on Valentine's Day, and Simon even flew halfway across the world to be there for the birth.

Taking to Twitter to make his first official announcement as a father, Simon wrote, "Very happy to say Eric was born at 17.45pm. Healthy and handsome. Lauren in great shape. Thanks for all of your kind messages," also adding that the baby is "Named after my dad."
