Holy Cute Baby! Elton John and his partner David Furnish are giving the world its first glimpse at their newborn son on the cover of Britain’s OK! Magazine, on newsstands this week.
The proud dads showed off Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, who was born via surrogate mother on Christmas Day. Elton, 63, wed and 48-year-old David in 2005 after a 12 year courtship. It is believed that the surrogate was implanted with an egg taken from a second woman and fertilized by one of the fathers. Word on the Curb has it that Elton is the biological dad — after all, he is listed on the birth certificate as the father — but the couple haven’t confirmed the child’s true paternity.
Both new parents say that despite their wealth, they’ll be careful not to spoil their tot.
“He shot out like a rocket,” the music legend told the OK! while describing Little Zachary’s birth. “There just aren’t proper words to describe that feeling. It’s indescribable. It was just, ‘We have a son!'”
The couple is donating all fees received from the interview and pictures of Zachary to charity.
Which of his dads do you think Baby Zach resembles most?
