Elton John: I Feel 'Blessed & Lucky' with New Son

Elton John drops by Book Soup to purchase some magazines on Wednesday (December 29) in Los Angeles.

The 63-year-old singer became a dad to son Zachary with husband David Furnish on Christmas Day!

“For many years we have talked about fulfilling one of our greatest wishes by becoming parents. And now this wish has been granted to us, we feel so blessed and lucky,” Elton told Us Weekly.

Elton and David have been wonderful godfathers to my son and I know they will be wonderful parents,” the couple’s friend, Elizabeth Hurley, told People. “I couldn’t be happier for them.”

Elton John and his husband are kind of old to be adopting a baby. I’m sure that they’ll love that little boy to bits but they are both old enough to be the child’s grandparents. Hopefully, they’ll live long enough to raise the baby to adulthood.

When Zachary enters grade school, all his classmates parents will be young and vibrant. Zachary will have a couple of doddering old queens for parents. It’s just not right.

They will be excellent parents and I’m so thrilled for them both. Age, sexual orientation doesn’t matter. All that matters is that this child will be loved. No child needs anything other than that.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!! please raise your son in England.

In my honest opinion , 60′s are the age to be spritual … if kids don’t happen by 40 , let it go , not every wish is fulfilled in life.


That’s a cute sentiment but kids are cruel. He’s going to have to endure a lot from his peers if Elton John and his partner plan to socialize him somewhat normally.

What a miserable looking piggy old man….but he is rich to hire a dozen nannies and lawyers. The kid will be fine with drugs and parties just like other traumatic celeb kids.

i wonder if it isn’t selfish knowing that you will be 70 when your child is 10. you can always go to children’s home or be a big brother there are lots of other ways to fill your void. anyway i wish them all the best the parents and child.

He doesn’t look healthy and fit…….My 82 grandma looks much, much better.
I wonder how long he can live.
When the kid became 18, he’d be 81. I really don’t think he can live that long…I hope the partner won’t be mean & jealous to his stepson!!

Why doesn’t this queen live in England?

Why are all these British celebrities living in the US?

Love to be his son to get all the money!

Congratulations to the two dads. I’m sure that he and David are going to be excellent fathers.


it gets worse, they needed two women, the egg from one and one to carry it. that is really screwed up!

David has cunning eyes. He is going to bully the kid!!

“Every picture tells a story don’t it…”

Come on Elton, you shouldn’t have time to be reading magazines with the little one…unless it is parenting mags, then carry on! Congrats!

I guess he meant to say “grandson”.

Why do homophobes go to a gay mans website anyway? Just go away, go awaayyy…

Being raised by a mature, patient, sober 63 year old and his gay partner of, what, 15 years, is not a bad thing, IMO. They are truly ready for this, and that is a good thing. The world is changing quickly, and MANY kids have much older parents, and gay parents, too. Congrats to Elton and David!

What the heck is he wearing….this doesn’t look good on anyone
