Simon Cowell was proud to show off the touching letter he received from his six-year-old son Eric for Father's Day.
The X Factor boss shared the message from his only son in a Zoom chat with his America's Got Talent colleagues on The Kelly Clarkson Show after being asked to show an item from his home that made him proud.
The 60-year-old said: "This was given to me on Father's Day and I'm going to read this to you because it was touching. This is from Eric, my six-year-old boy, to me.
"'I like to waddle, you like to waddle. I like fish, and you like fish. You like to swim, and I like to swim. I like to walk in your footsteps standing tall like you. You have webbed feet, and I have webbed feet… and I will always love you, Eric.'
"It's my favourite thing I've ever had."
Cowell shares Eric with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, who gave birth to their son on 14 February 2014.
Cowell's connections recently came in handy for Eric as his father landed him a role in new animated Scooby-Doo movie SCOOB!.
The music mogul announced on Instagram: “I watched Scooby Doo as a kid and now I’m thrilled to be watching it again with my son Eric. So when we got asked to be in the new Scooby Doo movie ‘@SCOOB!’, it was the quickest yes I’ve ever said.
“We never really got to find out how Scooby and Shaggy met the rest of the gang and now we do. It’s brilliant and what’s more brilliant is that you will be able to watch it at home on May 15.”
The youngster voiced Ben, a young tourist at the Acropolis in Greece while Cowell played himself.
