"When he just wants something, he's like me. He says it over and over again," he explains

Simon Cowell‘s son Eric Philip is already getting used to the spotlight.

Eric, 20 months, toddled into a recent Extra interview as his famous dad spoke about joining America’s Got Talent as a judge, and quickly stole the show.

Eric made his dad proud as he teased Extra‘s Terri Seymour by pretending to offer her a carrot but then giving the snack back to Cowell, who high-fived him and said, “That’s my boy!”

Cowel, 56, says he and his son, whom he named after his late father, have a lot in common.

“When he just wants something, he’s like me. He says it over and over again,” he explains.
