Elton John and David Furnish proud new parents

The star and his partner have become first time fathers after their son was born by surrogate on Christmas Day

Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish have become first time fathers after their son was born by surrogate on Christmas Day.

Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California and weighed 7lb15oz.

‘We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment,’ the couple told Usmagazine.com in a statement.

The couple have said that they intend to protect the privacy of the surrogate mother and will not be releasing any further details of the arrangement.

In 2009, the UK star and his Canadian husband attempted to adopt an orphan in the Ukraine but officials told Sir Elton, 62, that he was too old to be a parent and they did not recognise his marriage in Kiev.

But now it looks as though Sir Elton and David have a baby boy of their own – the best Christmas present they could have hoped for.
