Simon Cowell claims being `great parents` to baby son Eric

London: Simon Cowell has claimed that he and Lauren Silverman are `great parents` to their new born son Eric.

The 54-year-old music mogul rubbished criticism about his parenting skills for taking his two-week-old son to the beach, and revealed that he doesn`t regret it.

The ` Syco ` boss said that Eric is "one hundred per cent doing brilliantly" and his pediatrician in New York had cleared him to travel.

He added that he would never dream of putting his son at any risk and insisted that they are taking great care of him all the time.
