Cowell defends Miami holiday with baby

The music mogul and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman jetted to Florida for a beach holiday with Eric - who was born in New York on 14 February - and his parenting skills were attacked by several critics.

However, The X Factor boss has now hit back, insisting he and Silverman are proud parents and would never put their son at risk.

He tells the Daily Mail newspaper: "I just want people to be clear that, yes, he has gone on a plane very early on, but the paediatrician in New York cleared him to travel. We would not have done it otherwise. We would never dream of putting him a risk.

"I know there will be photos where Eric looks like he is in the sun, or photos where he looks like there's a dog in his face, or it looks like we aren't being great parents - but that isn't the case. We are taking great care of him all the time."
