Meet Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John!
Elton John and husband David Furnish debut their son Elijah to People while posing in a family picture with the newborn and older son Zachary Jackson Levon.
The couple reveal they were both present when their little bundle of joy arrived on Jan. 11.
“We tried to create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere,” John tells. “We were excited at the prospect of Elijah’s birth as we were at the prospect of Zachary’s — but much less nervous.”
Adds Furnish: “I would say we feel more secure in our parenting skills now — it’s far less scary than the first time ’round!”
Elijah was born to the same surrograte as his older brother Zachary.
“She is a wonderful, kind and loving woman,” says John, who thinks of her as “part of our family.”
Congrats to the new parents!
