Santa got Elton John the best present ever: A baby! One of the world’s biggest rock stars is celebrating possibly his proudest work. Sir Elton John, who married his partner David Furnish five years ago, became a father to Zachary Jackson Levon on Christmas Day.
Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California via a surrogate. He weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces. Elton John said: “We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment,” John, 62, and Furnish, 48, told the magazine. “Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.”
The baby’s middle name could be a tribute to Levon Helm, the drummer and singer for The Band who inspired the 1971 John hit Levon.
