Elton John and David Furnish show us their son Zachary

Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born on Christmas Day 2010 by a surrogate mother. He weighed about 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

“I’ve never felt anything like it in my life,” John told Us Weekly about the emotions felt when he took his son in his arms for the first time.. “You’re so awestruck. What can you say? You take it in. The feeling, the joy, the warmth of his body, his breathing…I will never forget that experience ever.”

Zachary is happy. He is a quiet baby who likes to be cuddled and sung to, as Furnish, film producer and Elton’s partner for the past 17 years, says.

In addition to having recently welcomed baby Zachary, the new dads also discussed how they intend not to give up plans to adopt two Ukrainian orphans.
