Elton John And David Furnish Announce Birth Of Second Son
Five days after denying rumors they had welcomed another child, Elton John and his partner David Furnish have announced the birth of son Elijah. A surrogate delivered Elijah in Los Angeles on Friday, January 11. Elijah weighed 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,” the couple said in a statement Wednesday. “It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.”
Elijah joins older brother Zachary, 2.
Last Thursday, a rep for the couple said reports of a second baby were “false.” Sources claimed the baby was delivered by the same surrogate that gave birth to Zachary on Christmas Day in 2010.
