Elton John welcomes second son Elijah Joseph Daniel
Elton John has become a father for the second time. The 65-year-old singer and his partner David Furnish welcomed their second child, a son. Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born via surrogate on Friday, January 11 in Los Angeles.
The baby boy weighted in at 8 lbs., 4 oz.
“Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. 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”, the couple said in a statement.
Elton married David in 2005. They are already parents to 2-year-old son Zachary Jackson Levon.
