ELTON JOHN and his partner, Canadian filmmaker DAVID FURNISH, have become parents of a son born to a surrogate in CALIFORNIA on CHRISTMAS DAY, REUTERS reports. The boy, named ZACHARY JACKSON LEVON FURNISH-JOHN, weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces and is the first for JOHN and FURNISH, who have been together since the early 1990s.
"We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment," US WEEKLY quoted the pair as saying. "ZACHARY is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents."
