Elton John, David Furnish have a second baby boy




Elton John and his husband David Furnish are parents for a second time, welcoming a son via surrogate on Jan. 11. Now they will know the joys of raising a pair of brothers who will fight nonstop, too!

Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born at 6:40 p.m. in L.A., weighing 8 lbs, 4 oz. Their other son Zachary Jackson Levon is 2 years old. And Elton is 65 and David is 50, so it's a good thing they can hire a nanny.

"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable," the couple says in a statement to Hello magazine. "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."

Zach's birthday is in December, so Elton and David are going to be inundated with birthday parties and Christmas presents every winter. They really should have told the surrogate to time it for the summer, so they could spread that stuff out a little bit.
