Congratulations are in order for Elton John and David Furnish – the longtime couple are the proud new parents of a baby boy!
Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California via a surrogate on December 25. He weighed 7lbs, 15oz.
“We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment,” Elton and David tell US. “Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.”
Though Elton once mused that parenthood was likely not in their future, he had a change of heart after spending time at a Ukrainian orphanage last year.
Zachary is the first child for the 62-year-old singer and his partner, who have been together for 12 years.
