Sir Elton John is holding close a new tiny dancer.
The piano man and husband David Furnish have become parents to a 7-pound, 15-ounce baby boy born on Christmas Day. The news was first reported Monday night by USMagazine.com and confirmed to The Associated Press by John's Los Angeles-based publicist.
Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California via a surrogate, whose identity is being protected by the new parents.
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.”

We can count on one thing, that their baby picture will surface and judging
by the very different facial characteristics, we wont have difficulty in
figuring out, who was the real biological father.
What is wrong is that there is no mother, these two men most probably will not have any involvement of the biological mother in the child's life.
Spare a thought for the biological mother and the child who will never have the benefit of having a real mother.
Who is the real father? The 62 year old Elton or the younger 48 year old
No doubt both will make fantastic fathers but this child will be the biological son of a woman who took money to have a child and give it away at birth.
Elton and David should let the world know what if any plans do they have for the involvement of the biological mother as a real mother in this boy's life.
