The reality TV mogul and his partner Lauren Silverman have decided to name their firstborn - who was delivered two weeks early yesterday weighing six pounds and seven ounces - in honor  of his late father, who passed away in 1999.

The couple had been rumored to be naming the baby Simon, and the star teased they had settled on a moniker for the tot last November, but they were determined to keep it a secret: "Actually, we agreed on a name last night, me and Lauren. I'm not going to say what it is yet, but I'm happy."
