In a 2023 interview with ET, Simon Cowell revealed that his son had taken up the drums at age 9 and was hoping that his dad would help make his rock star dreams come true. “[He’s] decided he’s going to audition for ‘Britain’s Got Talent,'” Simon shared. But Eric Cowell doesn’t need to form a band and make it big to party like a rock star. In 2017, he celebrated his 3rd birthday at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London, which was all decked out in dinosaur decorations — including a life-size one that looked like it had walked off the “Jurassic Park” set to terrify the partygoers. “Simon spent over £10,000 making it a wonderful day for Eric and all the guests,” a source told The Sun.
We don’t know what Simon got the little boy who can have pretty much anything for a birthday gift, but he’s not the only one who spoils Eric. When Simon appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2013, he left with a mini version of his $1.7 million Bugatti for Eric to add to his own car collection.
Eric isn’t just his father’s mini-me when it comes to their rides. When he returned to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2018, Simon said that Eric had inherited his sense of style. “We’ve got to the point now where [when] I’m ordering pajamas, he now has to wear the same pajamas as me,” Simon said.
