The musician and his partner David Furnish became dads again earlier this month when a surrogate gave birth to a son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John.
The proud papas have now posed for a new family snap, which shows a beaming Sir Elton cradling Elijah while Furnish holds their 2-year-old son Zachary.
The veteran star also tells People magazine how he and Furnish were in the delivery room in Los Angeles to see Elijah’s birth.
He says, “We tried to create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. We were excited at the prospect of Elijah’s birth as we were at the prospect of Zachary’s – but much less nervous,” and Furnish adds, “I would say we feel more secure in our parenting skills now – it’s far less scary than the first time ’round!”
