Little Eric Cowell is turning into a literal mini-me of his dad Simon.

The tv mogul (54) shared several snaps of him soaking up the sun with his sjx-month-old son, and the twosome were all smiles as they wore matching sunglasses on holidays.

He captioned the image, which he posed on his Twitter account, with: "Taking after daddy."

And he's clearly basking in the joy of fatherhood, thanks to the support of his partner Lauren Silverman.

"It’s not that difficult – if you’ve got a good [partner], who I’ve got, it’s a lot of fun. It’s easier than I thought," he said.

He recently purchased a luxury apartment in New York City, mere blocks away from Lauren's seven-year-old son from a previous relationship, which won't be built until 2016.

Wealthy Simon already owns properties in Los Angeles, Barbados and London.

His colossal fortune is largely due to his investment in tv talent shows such as Pop Idol, American Idol, Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor.

His wealth is estimated at a staggering €375 million, making him the eighth richest music millionaire in Britain.
