Eric looked like Simon's mini-me and the photo was a hit on social media, racking up more than 5000 retweets and 21,000 favourites on Twitter.

It appeared that show host and comedienne Ellen wanted to get in on the act. In the photoshopped image, Ellen appears behind Simon, sporting a huge grin and the same aviator glasses!

Ellen, who worked with Simon on American Idol's ninth season in 2010, said: "Our first family photo."

One word: AMAZING!

The mock photo, which gained more than 330,000 likes on Instagram, proved popular with fans. We wonder what Simon will make of the hilarious snap?!
