It’s official: Elton John and David Furnish have welcomed their second child!
After initially denying last week’s reports, the couple have confirmed the happy news to Hello! magazine, saying that their son Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born last Friday weighing 8lbs 4oz.
“We are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement. Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable,” say Elton, 65, and David, 50, who are also parents to 2-year-old son Zachary. “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.”
Earlier this year David revealed their plans for another baby – and their hope to use the same surrogate – explaining, “I would like Zachary to have a sibling. I think he would be better with a sibling than on his own. It’s something we talk about all the time. But in terms of when, where and how, nothing’s decided yet.”
Congratulations to them on the happy news!
