Simon Cowell’s son Eric is to make a cameo appearance in a One Direction video.
The music mogul thinks an on-screen appearance alongside the boys of 1D – Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan – would be a great introduction to fame for ten-month-old Eric, who is currently on holiday in Barbados with Simon, 55, and mother Lauren Silverman, 37.
A source explained: “Simon was saying how much Eric loves playing on his little drum set and how he is already into music.
“He said he’d like to see his son in a One Direction video and thinks it’d be hilarious.”
Although it’s not clear whether Simon was being serious when he suggested Eric would appear in the next 1D video, the insider believes it is a very real possibility.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the source added: “With Simon it’s always hard to tell whether he’s being fully serious. But you also never know what he has up his sleeve.
“And he is certainly accustomed to getting his own way.
“So don’t be surprised if the boys are not the youngest stars of their next video for a change.”
