Elton John confirms Lady Gaga is son Zachary's godmother




We knew Elton John and Lady Gaga were close, but we had no idea she is the godmother to his 4-month-old son, Zachary. Well, he said that on Saturday Night Live, but we thought it was a joke. Even when he said "That's not a joke."

John and partner David Furnish confirmed to Barbra Walters on tonight's episode of 20/20 that the rumors are true: "Yes, yes she is," John said. "When you get to the real person under there, there's a real simple person under there who loves her parents." According to MTV, Furnish then added, "Zachary's going to inherit an incredible musical legacy from his father one day, and she will be a good person to guide him through the ins and outs of the music business, 'cause she sure knows everything about the business now."

That rumor has been swirling since February, so it's nice to finally have some closure. Imagine the fashion sense that kid is going to have! Hey, somebody needs to take over for John Galliano.
