Elton John and David Furnish Are Dads!

Elton John and his partner of five-plus years have adopted a baby boy! The couple’s surrogate mother delivered the child, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, on Christmas day in California.

According to John and Furnish’s rep:

“We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment.  Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.”

And before you worry that Sir Elton, at the age of 62, and his partner David Furnish, at the age of 48, won’t be active parents because of their ages and stages in life, Furnish claims:

“We don’t want to put the raising of children into the hands of nannies and housekeepers. We want to be active parents”

All I know is that this child is going to be one lucky, privileged, and in-touch child with these two fabulous men as parents. Congratulations to the John-Furnish family – even if that poor child does has a wicked mouthful for a name.

  • I will be willing to bet big money that the kid will grow up to be damaged beyond belief. Neither of these two half-wits has the patience or responsibility to raise a kid.

    Elton John, a role model? Please, he can’t stop spending money to save his life. He has serious substance abuse issues in his past and I’m willing to be has no ability to take care of anyone else who can’t think for themselves.
