One of the entertainment industry’s most high profile talent scouts, Simon Cowell, announced the birth of his son Eric this Valentine’s Day.
TV’s ‘Mr Nasty’ softened his image when he tweeted heart-melting pictures of himself and his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, cradling his first-born in those first precious hours and days after the birth. The touching images were accompanied with the warming captions, ‘I never knew how much love and pride I would feel’ and ‘Now you can see how very handsome little Eric is’.
The notoriously harsh 54-year-old talent show judge shared perhaps the most intimate moment of his life with his 10 million Twitter followers.
He’s certainly not the first celebrity to eschew the traditional glossy magazine shoot in favour of sharing images of their little bundles of joy on social media, and we’re sure he won’t be the last.
We know that there’s no pride like the pride parents feel about their children. We’ve made it even easier to share precious photographs online, too, with the launch of our app which provides a slideshow of your Venture Photography images following a Venture experience.
After all, what parent can resist sharing photographs of the apple of their eye?
