Sir Elton John and David Furnish have shared the first pictures of their adorable baby boy, Zachary! He’s their tiny dancer!
Meet Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John! Elton John and his partner David Furnish share the first photos of their little guy in the new issue of Us Weekly, out Wednesday, Jan. 19. “He’s a content little guy…He’s very peaceful,” Elton, 63, says. “He just loves to be nurtured, cuddled, and sung to.” If my daddy was Elton John, I’d love to be serenaded too!
Zachary was born via a surrogate on Christmas Day and weighed seven pounds and 15 ounces. “I’ve never felt anything like it in my life,” Elton says of holding his son for the first time. “You’re so awestruck. What can you say? You take it in. The feeling, the joy, the warmth of his body, his breathing…I will never forget that experience ever.” We are so thrilled for Elton and David, who have struggled to become parents for a while now.
The couple of 17 years was heartbroken after their adoption of two Ukrainian twins Lev and his HIV positive brother Artyom fell through. Now they finally have what they’ve always wished for, a baby of their own. Congrats!
