Elton John & David Furnish Welcome The Birth Of A Baby Son

Welcome to the World, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John

Congratulations are in order for Sir Elton John and his civil partner hubby David Furnish because they are the proud parents of a newborn baby boy born via surrogate on Xmas Day. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Alanis Morissette and her hubby Mario Souleye Treadway welcomed the birth of their son, Ever Imre, on Xmas Day … so Elton and David are in very good new parent company.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish have become parents to son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, the couple tells UsMagazine.com exclusively. The baby boy, who was born Dec. 25 in California via a surrogate, weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces. “We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment,” John and Furnish tell Us in a joint statement. “Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.” This is the first child for John, 62, and Furnish, 48. The couple married in 2005 after 12 years together. A rep for the couple has stated that they intend to protect and respect the privacy of their surrogate, and will not be discussing any details relating to the surrogacy arrangements.

Wow … this news came out of nowhere. If I recall correctly, there was some talk a bit ago of Elton and David mebbe adopting a baby … but I really dismissed all that talk as idle chatter. I guess the idea of fatherhood really stuck with them both so they decided to move forward with a baby of their own. As you may recall, Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka welcomed the birth of their twin babies earlier this year and their children were born via surrogate mother. All these new babies in 2010 kinda makes the year seem a bit more special, don’tcha think? Let’s send our heartiest congrats and best wishes to the expanding Furnish-John family :D

    Congratulations on the birth of your son,I would like to welcome you both to parenthood. I hope he has your talent, if not he is a very lucky little boy!!!

  3. I just cannot imagine Elton as a parent. He is such a tantrum throwing diva and I hope he realises what he is getting himself into. Having said that, I do wish them both the best.

    I’m sincerely happy for them but I do also wonder about Elton’s age. He could easily be Zachary’s grandfather…

    Wow a Christmas baby boy Awesome ! Congratulations parents. Great names too – hey baby Zachary – Jackson welcome to the world .I cannot help but wonder what your special song will be . I bet your parents will write you a very special song for the world to hear expressing their love and the joy that they are feeling over you atleast i hope they write one i am sure it would be beautiful … i have lots of kids so i know the love ,joy and excitment your parents are feeling …. just look what a grand entrance you already made … wow You were born on a special day and you were blessed with very special parents that love you … God Bless you and your parents always

  6. in all honesty Elton could be his great-grandfather. i mean im 18 and my great-grandma is in her 70s.

    What is sad to me is that gay couples have to pro-create in order to get a baby and if it would be easier to adopt, they could adopt babies already out there and needing families which they initially tried to do. Anyhow, congratulations to both of them….I know Elton is a little old to become a dad but babies just need love, and I see too many young kids popping them out and not loving them. Elton’s child will no doubt be loved as they wanted a baby for some time, and Elton still financially cares for the HIV positive boy that he was not allowed to adopt. So he has a heart, I love Elton for what he is doing. Congratulations to you both on the birth of your son.

    I’m pretty sure this breaks the 5th seal of the apocalypse.

    When you see this kind of thing happening it truly is a sign that Jesus is soon to come. THEY NEED TO REPENT! FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH THIS KIND OF THING. HE..HE THE CREATOR MADE ADAM & EVE NOT ADAM & STEVE! HOW DARE ANYONE TRY TO RE-WRITE GOD’S EVERLASTING PLAN? JUDGMENT IS ON THE WAY.

      I Don’t know about your God, but my God loves all his children reguardless of their personal beliefs. My God wants us to be tolerant of each other and live together in peace.

    • Esther O

      Don’t get it twisted! My God loves all his people He Hates the sin!! He hates that we don’t love Him enought to trust His Plan for our lives. judgment for refusing Him is forthcoming. and btw,just because you don’t believe something doesn’t make it any less TRUE!

    • Esther O

    God Bless you Elton and David.

    • Esther O

      Which god???? A HOLY God cannot bless sin!!! When His only Son Jesus was on the Cross with the sins of the world on his shoulder God could not look on him until His work was finished.

  14. Esther O

    Thanks John, but the Word need not be defended. Anyways, my work here is done and my point made. Debho, you need Jesus- don’t leave earth without HIM.

    Elt and Dave look, you’re both men of the world, both of you a man’s man to the core, but Jesus Lord boys, how on earth did this situation unfold? You both displayed commendable courage with your public union I suppose, though I certainly have my reservations, but this latest episode is bloody ridiculous, it really is. Still, fair’s fair, but hey lads, let’s get right to the heart of the situation here, what are you both playing at for Heaven’s sake? What the Hell’s going on? This isn’t conventional you guys, this is a very serious situation, have you both really thought this thing through step by step? I’me telling you now, if neither of you bloody well have, the repercussions for this could be absolutely catastrophic, both for yourselves and the infant. You know when all is said and done, personally, I think you’re ridiculing yourselves boys, both of you. With a throw of the dice at parenthood of this nature, you’ll both either come out smelling of roses or looking like complete nincompoops.
