Sir Elton John's toddler son got so excited when he saw firemen recently the singer asked them to give the tot a ride in their truck.

The British singer and his partner David Furnish are parents to Zachary, two, and four-month-old Elijah. Zachary is obsessed with firefighters and couldn't contain himself when he saw two men in the uniform while out shopping with Elton. The tot began yanking on his father's arm and pointing at the gents, much to the musician's amusement.

"Elton approached the guys, introduced himself, told them Zac's a huge fan of firefighters and would just love to ride on a real fire truck," a source laughed to National Enquirer.

The emergency services personnel were only too happy to help out the singing superstar. They told Elton to follow them back to the fire station, where they let the toddler roam around the truck as much as he wanted.

News Elton and David were adding to their family only began leaking at the end of last year. They are thought to have used the same surrogate for both their children and have spoken at length about how complete their family now is.

"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement," they said earlier this year.
