Celebaby: Elton John And David Furnish Dads Again
In December 2010, Elton John and David Furnish became parents to, the rather gorgeous, Zachary - they're fathers again, to another son, who was born on Friday evening.
Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John arrived into the world weighing 8lbs 4ozs and his fathers are over the moon:
"We are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement," they've said. "Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way.
It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."
Elton has also spoken about how he regrets not having his sons earlier in life, and says of Zachary:
"Zachary has changed our lives. Everything is about him now. He’s gorgeous, he travels brilliantly, he so loves people, and it makes our lives - he’s the icing on the cake. It’s the most wonderful thing that you could possibly go through. The first thing I do every morning is have breakfast with him. He shares my breakfast. Whatever I have, he wants."
It's also been revealed that Zachary calls Elton 'Daddy' and David, 'Papa', and as for the oft-asked question about who is the genetic father to both boys - well, no one knows!
The boys have the same mother (whose identity will never be revealed) and as they were conceived in California, where it's legal to use a mix of sperm, allowing both fathers to have their names on the birth certificate, it could be either; hurrah for them, they seem like a really happy family unit.
