Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish are new dads!
John’s publicist confirmed late Monday that the child, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, was born on Christmas Day via surrogate (7-pounds, 15-ounces). Zachary is 62-year-old John’s first child with the 48-year-old Furnish. The couple married in 2005.
In a joint statement, the new parents told USMagazine.com that “Zachary is healthy and doing well” and they are “overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment.”
A rep for the couple has stated that they intend to protect and respect the privacy of their surrogate, and will not be discussing any details relating to the surrogacy arrangements.
