Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born to a surrogate mother on Christmas Day and is now living with Elton, 63 and his 48 year old partner of 12 years David.
According to reports, the surrogate mother was implanted with an egg from another female donor and then fertilized by one of the fathers. Elton John is listed as the father on the birth certificate, but he has not confirmed that it was his sperm that provided the surrogate baby.
While the men are wealthy, they told the magazine that they plan to ensure their boy isn’t spoiled.
John went on to say the birth was fantastic and quick:
“He shot out like a rocket,” Elton said, adding, “There just aren’t proper words to describe that feeling. It’s indescribable. It was just, ‘We have a son!’”
Money received for the photo shoot is being donated to charity.
