”One of Zachary’s middle names, Levon, is the title of an Elton John song. We chose it because there is a line in the song ‘He was born on Christmas Day’ – and of course Zachary was born on December 25, 2010.” – papa David on his son’s middle name.
“I love getting up in the morning and having breakfast with Zachary. They’re very portable; it’s lovely to take them around the world. The biggest change for me, everything I thought I would find annoying about having children, like screaming and shouting, and tantrums… I don’t find any of it annoying, I find it all enchanting. You learn so much about yourself and about life by seeing children. A ritual I love is 6:30 ‘tubby time.’ I know every children’s book back to front… even in Las Vegas, he has his bath backstage, now we have to bathe two of them backstage.” – Elton on his two sons.
“She’s a great role mode. She’s been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him… We’re all bonkers in this business, but we’re human beings at the same time.” – Elton on Zachary and Elijah’s godmother Lady Gaga.
