Elton John recalls birth of son: 'He shot out like a rocket'
Sir Elton John has described watching his new son being born as “indescribable”.
The 63-year-old singer and his 48-year-old partner David Furnish welcomed their first child together on Christmas day in California – a son named Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John. The baby was conceived via surrogate, with Elton and David explaining the child’s mother will remain anonymous.
Elton and David have now presented their newborn to the world in a magazine interview, where the crooner has revealed he was present at Zachary’s birth and was completely bowled over with emotion at the time.
“He shot out like a rocket. There just aren't proper words to describe that feeling. It's indescribable. It was just, 'We have a son'!" Elton gushed to the British edition of OK! magazine.
As a multi-millionaire recording artist and songwriter, Elton can afford to indulge his little boy with extravagant gifts, although he has no plans to do so. The musician knows being a loving father is far more important than showering Zachary with presents.
"I'm ready to have a child and lavish my love on our son and not spoil him," he added.
