The Scottish Sun
SIMON Cowell played with his son Eric on the beach as they wore Transformers masks on a jet ski ride.
The music mogul enjoyed a fun-packed day at the beach with his mini-me as they soaked up the rays in Barbados.

Simon, 59, whisked his family away to enjoy some Winter sun in the Caribbean on his traditional post-X Factor holiday.
And proving that he and his four-year-old son are thick as thieves they both rocked matching Transformers masks.
The sweet duo shared the in-joke as they walked along the sandy shore and then enjoyed a jet ski ride together.
And Simon looked in his element – relaxed and care-free and a far cry from the Mr.Nasty persona that he was once known by.

The sweet duo shared the in-joke together and Simon was ever the doting father
Judging by the X Factor judge’s trim physique, he showed that despite nearing the big 6-0 he still takes good care of himself.
The father-of-one donned a pair of white board shorts and left his life vest open to show off his sculpted pecs and rugged hairy chest.
While adorable Eric wore a pair of blue trunks with red killer whales on them – surprisingly he didn’t opt for a shark print, having requested a performance of the viral song sensation Baby Shark during this year’s X Factor final.
Also joining the father and son duo on their day out was Simon’s partner of five years – Lauren Silverman.

Lauren looked stunning in a one-shouldered yellow swimming costume as she watched on with pride at her boys as they frolicked in the sea.
The Cowell trip to Barbados dates back years, with the star gallivanting about on yachts with exes including Sinitta, Jackie St Clair and Mezhgan Hussainy before he became a family man.
And the trip to the sun-drenched island took place earlier than usual, given that the shorter X Factor schedule this year.
Simon has spoken out about finding fatherhood a delight, admitting it has massively chilled him out.

He said: “Eric finds me funny and I find him funny. It’s chilled me out. We watch movies and then we have these crazy conversations.
“I’ve laughed more this year than I have done in years. He reminds me of what I used to be like when I was his age.”
