David Furnish and Elton John Baby

Sir Elton and his husband are parents again! The English couple welcomed their second child via surrogate, another baby boy. Elton even named his new boy after one of his songs — read on to find out what it is!

Elton John and his husband David Furnish have expanded their family! The couple, who are parents to Zachary, 2, have welcomed another baby! David and Sir Elton also reportedly used the same surrogate who delivered their son Zachary two years ago. 

They named their new baby Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John after Elton’s 1973 hit “Daniel.” The song features the lyrics, “Daniel my brother, you are older than me…Daniel you’re a star.”

“Elton and David named both their boys after songs. It’s a lovely touch – especially because Daniel is about two brothers,” a friend of the couple’s told the Daily Mail. 

Elton & David Buy 7.6 Million Home In Beverly Hills

The couple, who married in 2005 after 12 years together, reportedly bought a lavish home in Beverly Hills for $7,695,000 for their growing family. They sold their swanky Los Angeles apartment.

Sir Elton & David Speak Out About New Baby

“The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement,” the pair said to UK’s Hello! magazine.

A source revealed that they were paid “mega bucks” for the first pictures of Elija, which they sold to the UK magazine, but the source adds that “every penny” will go do Elton’s charity  the Elton John Charitable Foundation.

Congrats to Elton and David! We wish them and their boys a lifetime of happiness. Are YOU excited for them HollyMoms?

so happy for them! I hope the surrogate recovers quickly and the little family is happy and healthy!

Laurie, people like you make me sick. what about singe parents? there’s only one sex there. my mom raised my brother and me as a single mom, after my dad died. we were fine without a father. I’m sure the boys will have a mother figure in their lives. smh. complainin about someone having two parental figures is silly.

Oh, I know what you thought I meant – when I said SIR I meant Elton’s name/title – you idiot…I didn’t mean that calling him sir was an “old” tradition.

SingleMomma, I sleep just fine, cause I know I raised my 2 children the way they should have been raised – with a MOTHER AND A FATHER! What the hell does saying “yes ma’am” have to do with Elton being too old… he will be dead before the kids are raised. He is in his 60’s for God sakes!!

Honestly Hollywoodlife? I catch spelling and/or grammar mistakes in every single article you post. And the aren’t an English couple. Elton John is English, his partner is CANADIAN.

IDIOTS!!! Poor kids to not have a mother around, plus, “SIR” is WAY TOO OLD to be raising a baby. Oh wait, I’m sure the nannies will do most of the work.

How do you sleep at night!?!?! There is nothing wrong with two fathers! Sometimes it’s the best thing for a child! Also, there is nothing wrong with a little old fashion traditions… My son says ‘yes ma’am’ to me… is that too old?! Why judge them? Because they are a happily married GAY couple who wants to have children!? geeshhh!!!
