Simon seemed in his element as he raced across the water on his jet ski, while little Eric took a leaf out of his father’s book by doing some water sports of his own.

The music mogul beamed a dazzling smile as he drove by and showed off his excellent skills on the watership.

Simon also showed the results of his four stone weight loss, he went shirtless for the occasion and added a pair of white swimming trunks.

The star kept an eye out as his one and only son drove past him on what appeared to be a children’s water ski trainer board.

Eric was dressed in a blue life jacket and held the reins of his board, which appeared to be pulled by another boat

Eric, who also donned a white beach top and patterned blue shorts, looked delighted and couldn’t stop smiling as he rode alongside his father.

Meanwhile, Lauren seemed content to enjoy the action from a nearby boat, where her friends joined her.

The beauty paired her stylish leaf print swimwear with a wide-brimmed straw hat and oversized dark sunglasses.

Lauren’s eldest son Adam, 15, who she shares with ex-husband Andrew Silverman, did not appear to be on the boat trip. The family was accompanied by a large number of friends and crew.

Their latest Caribbean vacation comes after Simon vows to do everything he can to make sure he makes a full recovery after breaking his back.

Simon was bedridden for months after an electric bicycle accident at his Malibu home last August.

The record executive now walks several hours a day and holds business meetings at 9:00 a.m. so that he no longer lives like a “vampire.”

About his new fitness regime, a source told MailOnline: ‘Simon said he hasn’t worn that many trainers in 20 years.

“He feels fitter than ever and sticks to a normal routine instead of sitting on the phone until the early hours.”

Simon told Additional in February of the horror bike incident: ‘I almost broke my spine!’

The X Factor boss also admitted he “couldn’t have done it” without his girlfriend Lauren and son Eric, who affectionately referred to him as “iron man” when he first saw his father with metal bars and screws in his back after a operation.

Simon met Lauren while still married to millionaire property developer Andrew Silverman.

Their affair came to the fore – and Simon’s life changed – in late July 2013 when news broke of Lauren’s pregnancy.

In 2015, Simon told Mail on Sunday Event magazine: “I’m not proud of the circumstances, I can’t keep my head up.”

And about the pregnancy, he admitted, “This wasn’t something I planned. But I remember going to the first scan with Lauren.

“I called him Tad because he looked like a tadpole. Something just came up. I felt incredibly protective of both of them. I just absolutely wanted it. I just didn’t know that before.’
