Elton John and David Furnish show off new son in family portrait

The Elton John and David Furnish family portrait just got a little more crowded with the addition of a new son named Elijah Joseph Daniel who was born earlier this month (11 January).

The couple’s other son, Zachary Jackson Levon, was born two years ago.

Fathers and sons posed for their first official family portrait for People magazine and the parents talked about the new baby who was born in Los Angeles to the same surrogate mother as Zachary.

‘We were excited at the prospect of Elijah’s birth as we were at the prospect of Zachary’s — but much less nervous,’ the 65-year-old singer says.

Furnish adds: ‘I would say we feel more secure in our parenting skills now — it’s far less scary than the first time ’round!’

The name of the surrogate mother has not been revealed but the situation sounds a little bit like the NBC comedy The New Normal.

‘She is a wonderful, kind and loving woman,’ says John, who adds that the couple considers her a  ‘part of our family.’
