The iconic singer’s name is on the birth certificate of the baby boy born on Christmas Day!

Ever since Elton John announced that he and his husband, David Furnish,48, had welcomed a son, Zachary, on Christmas Day, there has been speculation as to who could be the biological father of the little boy. Now we know, that it was indeed Elton’s DNA that went into creating the child, who was born via an anonymous surrogate mother in California on Dec. 25. “Elton really wanted the child to have his genes,” a friend of the Candle in the Wind singer tells Popeater.com.

Apparently, Elton, 62, was hoping to pass his singing ability on to their son. “He has a god-given talent and wanted to pass that on to a child. And after years of discussion and thought, Elton and David decided together that Elton’s sperm would be used,” explains the friend.

And this kid is going to grow up in grand fashion, according to the friend. “Elton has already purchased a $2 million adjoining apartment in Los Angeles to turn into the perfect nursery. Elton’s son already has four round-the-clock nannies and his own chef. This little boy is going to want for nothing except a mom.” And as we told you on Monday (Jan. 3) he’s already spent over $50,000 on the nursery! But why does a newborn need a chef? Maybe to warm his bottles?

We are excited about watching this little guy grow up!
