Elton John and David Furnish welcome second son!
Music megastar Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish have welcomed their second child into the world!
According to Hello, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born via surrogate at 6.40pm on Friday January 11 – weighing in at a healthy 8lb 4oz.
“Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable,” the couple told Hello.
“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.”
The 65-year-old ‘Rocket Man’ singer had previously spoken openly about wanting a sibling for their son Zachary, who was born on Christmas Day 2010.
“I think it’s difficult to be an only child, and to be an only child of someone famous,” the star said.
“I want Zachary to have a sibling.”
Congratulations Sir Elton and David!
