Elton John and partner David Furnish have welcomed a second child together, a son named Elijah.
The two welcomed Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John on January 11 via a Los Angeles surrogate, Cinema Blend reports.
As we previously reported, the “Rocket Man” singer and his partner expressed their desire to have another child in the spring 2012. John told the Guardian that he wanted a playmate for their son, Zachary, explaining, “I think it's difficult to be an only child, and to be an only child of someone famous. I want him to have a sibling so he has someone to be with.”
John and Furnish confirmed the exciting news to Hello! Magazine, saying, “Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. 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."
John and Furnish were married in 2005 following their 12 year long relationship.
