Ever since Elton John and his partner David Furnish adopted their son Zachary 18-months ago, they couldn’t have appeared happier.
In an interview on US news channel NBC, Elton, 65, said he’d never seen a more contented child than his son, but admitted, “it’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy,” reports the Daily Mail.
Zachary was born in California using a surrogate and donor egg with both Elton and David donating sperm. The couple have said they are keen for Zachary to have a sibling and may well go back to the same egg donor so that there would be a biological connection between potential siblings.
Elton said “I’d love to have more children… I want Zachary to have a brother or a sister to go to school with him, so that he can have someone to play with.”
Talking about becoming a parent, the singer also said, “You have never seen two more contented people as David and I.”
