Elton John and David Furnish are new parents of baby boy

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.
