Sir Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, have welcomed a second son into their family.
Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John, born on January 11th to a surrogate, was a “much-wanted brother” for John and Furnish’s other two-year-old son, Zachary.
Speaking exclusively to HELLO! Magazine, the couple confirmed the news:
“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.”
Sir Elton John and David Furnish were married in 2005 after 12 years together.
They spoke last summer about their desire to extend their family.
“I think it’s difficult to be an only child, and to be an only child of someone famous,” the singer said. “I want Zachary to have a sibling.”
