You heard me right–Sir Elton John is a father. Along with his long-time partner David Furnish, Sir Elton adopted baby “Zachary,” born on Christmas day, into their family. The couple has tried to adopt in the past, only to be denied. The mother of the baby was a surrogate, and remains unknown for the time being.
Elton describes his experience with fatherhood saying, “I’ve never felt anything like it in my life. You’re so awestruck, I will never forget that feeling ever.” He has already shared that they plan to lavish their child with love and attention, not with material possessions.
The singer and “husband” Furnish have been together for 12 years, and married in 2005.
