Meanwhile, more stars have been sending their best wishes to the TV mogul including Piers Morgan, who posted a photo of Simon with his late father on Twitter and wrote: "A young Simon Cowell with his father Eric, who he adored... lovely tribute to name his son after him."
Tom Jones, who is a judge on X Factor rival The Voice, had some words of advice for the new dad via Mail Online. He told them: "Good luck to him and his partner and his new child. I think having a child is a responsibility.
"I had a child when I was 17 years old and you can do both. You can have a family and still enjoy being in showbusiness."
Elsewhere, Simon's close friend and ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour said: "I called him tonight and he is so excited. It really is all change for him, but he is ready. I can't wait to see them all."
