One Direction to have Simon Cowell's son as new drummer
Los Angeles: TV mogul Simon Cowell has joked on social media that his son should be the new drummer of English Boy band, One Direction.
The 55-year-old, who welcomed his first child in February with partner Lauren Silverman, has shared a video of his son Eric hitting a drum, on his Facebook page Wednesday, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"One Direction have just hired Eric as their new drummer," he wrote in the post.
The video shows the tot - whose mother is Simon's partner Lauren Silverman - banging along on a red drum while the boyband's song plays in the background.
Of course, One Direction, who found fame on Cowell's X Factor, are Simon's other babies and they have proved to be one of his best acquisitions.
Cowell is currently appearing as a judge on the eleventh series of “The X Factor”.
