“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.” – the happy couple on the birth of their son.
“We don’t want to put the raising of children into the hands of nannies and housekeepers. We want to be active parents.” – David on their wishes to be hands-on parents.
“We’re going to raise him to be proud of who he is and understand that he came from a relationship that was taking the love we have for each other to a more dedicated and committed level. I can’t tell you how brilliant this year has been and how much love he’s brought us and how much we’re getting. We thought the civil partnership brought us together, but having a child has been magnificent. Now, having a kid, there’s so much more to do. There’s so much more I want to see happen before I die.” – papa Elton on fatherhood.
