Simon Cowell is known as one of the toughest men in music.
But when it comes to his son Eric he is a big kid at heart too.
The latest evidence came as he enjoyed a winter break with Eric, 4, and his partner Lauren Silverman.
The X Factor boss, 59, wore a Bumblebee Transformers mask, to go on a jet-ski ride with his little boy.
Each Christmas Cowell escapes to Barbados to have some fun in the sun.
And his mini-me son also rocked a matching mask as the pair took to the high seas on his jet ski.

Simon wore a pair of white shorts and his signature dark shades for their day on the beach, along with a two-tone life vest.
His partner Lauren wore a bright yellow swimsuit as she watched the pair from the beach.
To shield her eyes she wore a white baseball cap and some Aviator sunglasses.
Her son wore a grey t-shirt and colorful board shorts as he took to the water with his famous father.
Cowell became a father later on in life but he was happy to do so – he revealed: "If you have asked me earlier I would have said I might have left it a little too late,' said Simon, before quickly adding: 'Whatever happens happens."
He and Silverman welcomed son Eric in February 2014. They named him after Simon's late father, who died in 1999.
Lauren is also mum to son Adam, 12, from her previous relationship and has been dating Simon, for six years.
