Proud Parents Elton John And David Furnish Show Off Son Elijah: ‘He Completes Our Family’
Elton John and David Furnish have spoken for the first time about the birth of their second child, Elijah, who was born earlier this month via surrogate claiming a second son “completes our family.”
Elijah Daniel Furnish-John, was born on January 11 from the same surrogate as the couple used for the birth of their first son, two year-old Zachary. In an interview with Hello! Magazine the couple revealed just what the child meant to them.
John said: “ [Elijah] completes our family in a most precious and perfect way”.
“I have learned that a parent’s capacity for love is endless. When another child is born, our depth of love just grows deeper and wider, so it was very emotional.”

While it hasn’t been confirmed by the couple, John is believed to be the biological father of Zachary, and is listed as father on the child’s birth certificate while, Furnish is named as mother.
Speaking of the woman who has carried both their children, the 65 year-old music legend said: “She is a wonderful, kind and loving woman, who we love like a sister.”

“We have a very close bond with her and were in constant touch throughout the pregnancy, getting updates, seeing scans and sharing all the little details that make those nine months so exciting.
“She has given us two amazing gifts and we in turn have a duty of care to her and are fiercely protective of her anonymity.”
