Forget a white Christmas – the Cowell-Silverman clan headed south for the holidays!

Lauren Silverman, girlfriend of Simon Cowell and mom to their son Eric, 1, hit the beach during their Barbados vacation in a fiery red bikini.

Silverman, 38, completed her sporty look with a white cap, tinted sunglasses and a gold watch. Cowell left his usual wardrobe as a judge on The X-Factor behind for their day at the beach, wearing white and blue printed swim trunks with sunglasses and a lifejacket.

After surfing the waves on a jet ski, Silverman let Cowell, 56, pose for photos with his fans.

Silverman and Cowell are loving life as a family of three, they said in May.

“I never expected to be a father, but I love it. Eric makes me laugh. He and I communicate very well because we basically like the same things – Scooby Doo, Disney movies, laughing at the dogs,” Cowell said.

And Lauren, who has a 9-year-old son with her ex-husband Andrew Silverman, agreed, adding:

“Simon’s house is now a family home,” she said. “I have three boys now, including him. He’s lots of fun, he makes us all laugh a lot.”

Lauren met Cowell through Andrew, and says she’s very happy with the producer.

“I think Simon has changed me. He makes me laugh all the time. I can’t get angry with him because when I’m trying to be cross, he just makes me laugh.”
