Elton John and husband David Furnish received the best Christmas present this year by becoming proud parents with the birth of their first child, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John!
Their 7-pound 15-ounce son was born December 25th from a surrogate mother and has officially been adopted by Elton John and his filmmaker husband, who he married in 2005, David Furnish.
“We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment,” John and Furnish tell Us in a joint statement. “Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.”
Although this is the first child for the iconic singer, Elton John is also a Godfather to many famous children including Sean Lennon, Elizabeth Hurley’s child, and Victoria and David Beckham’s first two sons. A rep for the couple stated they won’t be discussing details of the surrogate arrangements in order to respect and protect her privacy.
