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.

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?
