Sir Elton plans son's birthday bash

Sir Elton John and partner David Furnish are planning a family gathering to mark their son's first birthday - but they will not be lavishing the youngster with gifts.

David said they will instead focus on one "significant" present to mark the milestone for Zachary.

The youngster - who was born by surrogate - will turn one on Christmas Day so the multi-millionaire couple will be hosting a joint event to mark both occasions.

David said: "We're going to roll the two together and bring all the families together and have a wonderful celebration, so I'm so excited about that.

David was speaking as he attended a Los Angeles charity event for the Trevor Project, which provides help to young members of the gay and lesbian community.

He said they would hold back on swamping the youngster with gifts.

"I think particularly for his birthday I want there to be one significant present to mark each birthday in a memorable and meaningful way," he said.

"I've got a couple of ideas."
