There’s no doubt that Elton John and husband David Furnish’s baby boy is going to grow up in the lap of luxury — he’s less than a week old and already getting super cool gifts!

Elton John and his husband David Furnish received the best gift of all when their son, Zachary, was born via a surrogate on Christmas Day. And ever since then the couple has been showering their tiny tot with gifts. The latest to arrive is a mamaRoo! Sure, it looks like something from outer space, but this pod-like chair has a ton of benefits for a baby!

The neat seat bounces up and down and sways side to side, which is supposed to mimic the movements of a parent holding a baby. It has five different motions that simulate everything from a car ride to ocean waves and even something called kangaroo! Wow — these things have come a long way from when I was a kid!

Elton’s thrilled about Zachary’s arrival

The high-tech infant seat retails for about $200 and comes in a range of cool colors — including lime green, basic black and princess pink — and also features balls decorated with classical works of art from the likes of Van Gogh and Monet. Oh yeah, and there’s an iPod dock in it, so Elton, 62, can play Zachary his greatest hits from the get go!

“Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents,” says Elton. And when it came time to pick a name for their baby boy the singer and David, 48, didn’t have to think twice. “A friend gave us a book of baby names, and we started to flick through it, but we have always loved the name Zachary and kept coming back to it. In the end, we looked at each other, and put the book back on the shelf, and said, ‘This is it!'” he tells Us magazine.
