Simon Cowell has welcomed two new additions to his household – a pair of absolutely adorable puppies!

The X Factor mogul uploaded a seriously sweet shot to Twitter on Thursday night (3 October) showing himself cuddling up to the fluffy bundles.

Aww, a softer side to Simon than we've ever seen before!

The cute canines have yet to be named so Simon asked his Twitter followers for their advice. Suggestions included Sharon and Louis, Kim and Khloe and, our favourite, Simon Jr. and Jr. Simon.

Looks like Simon will be getting in some daddy practice thanks to the gorgeous pups ahead of the arrival of his first child, rumoured to be a baby boy.

Simon and his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman were seen looking for a dog to adopt in Los Angeles earlier this week.

According to The Mirror, the parents-to-be were seen visiting the Yellow Brick Road Kennels to look at Simon's favourite breed of dog, the Cairns terriers.

Back on 3 September, the US X Factor judge told fans he was planning on adopting two dogs from LA.

He tweeted: "I am going to get two dogs when I get back. Probably cairn terriers. If any rescue shelters have some who need a home let me know."

Looks like it will be a busy, fun household for Simon and Lauren in the months to come!
