The music mogul became a first time father on Valentine's Day after girlfriend Lauren Silverman went into labour in New York.
Cowell, who was at the latest round of Britain's Got Talent auditions in London, flew on a private jet to make it in time for his son's birth.
On Sunday the X Factor boss shared pictures of his son on his Twitter page, writing: "Now you can see how very handsome little Eric is."
Captioning an image of himself holding two-day old Eric, he said: "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel."
The boy is the 54-year-old's first child and Silverman's second - she also has an eight year old son with her ex-husband Andrew Silverman.
