Simon Cowell paints London skyline across son's nursery

SIMON Cowell has painted the skyline of London across his son Eric's nursery as he wants him to grow up knowing his British heritage.

The 54-year-old music mogul has had famous landmarks - including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament - splashed across the walls of his first child Eric's bedroom because he's keen for the tiny tot to grow up knowing his British heritage.

Eric - who was born on Friday in New York - will be spending a lot of time in the US as his mother Lauren Silverman is American, but he'll also have a home in the UK too.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Simon is a true Brit and wants to make sure Eric grows up knowing he has a home in the UK as much as the States."

The couple are considering sending Eric to a school in the UK as the 'X Factor' boss is adamant his son will speak with an English accent, rather than an American one, and they want him to be around his godmother Sinitta and grandmother Julie, who reside in England.

The source explained: "Simon has made no secret that he would like Eric to have an English accent, rather than an American one. The lad's granny, Julie, lives in England as do lots of Simon's friends, including Sinitta.

"There is also talk about sending Eric to school in the UK."

The proud parents took the newborn home from hospital on Sunday (16.02.14), but Simon is expected to return to the UK later this week for the 'Britain's Got Talent' auditions.
