Like most fathers, Simon Cowell couldn’t help posting an adorable video of his nine-month-old son, Eric, on his Facebook page Thursday. And it appears the little one, whose mother is Cowell’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman, may indeed have some musical chops.

The music and TV producer, 55, posted a video of Eric drumming along to One Direction’s “Story Of My Life” and captioned the video, “One Direction have just hired Eric as their new drummer.” (See it below!)

Although Cowell recently admitted he’s not “exactly a hands on dad,” and that he would like to “fast forward a few years so I can take him go-karting and then introduce him to women,” he does appear to be enjoying some of his baby’s cuter moments.

In August he shared a a sweet Twitter pic of the two of them in matching sunglasses with the caption, “Taking after daddy.”
