A New Baby for Sir Elton John and David Furnish

A New Baby for Sir Elton John and David FurnishBack in 2010, Sir Elton John and partner, David Furnish worked with a California-based clinic for the birth of their son Zachary who was born on Christmas day. Zachary was carried by a surrogate mother who was not the biological mother, so effectively he has two fathers and two mothers. Sir Elton was overwhelmed with happiness and joy after becoming a father at 63 years old and is now ready to do it again so that Zachary doesn’t remain an only child.

David Furnish has told the Evening Standard that he and long time partner, Sir Elton want to have another baby, again with the help of a surrogate – “I’d like Zachary to have a sibling, he would be better with a sibling than on his own. We talk about it all the time. In terms of when, where and how nothing is decided yet. But I think we will wait until the summer. Our life is like a treadmill with Elton constantly working.”

David 49 and Elton, 65, are wanting to use the same donor as last time to keep a ‘biological connection’ between Zachary and his sibling.

More Countries join US craze for Baby Shower Cakes That Reveal Baby’s Sex

More Countries join US craze for Baby Shower Cakes That Reveal Baby's Sex

Cake already plays an important role in a lot of our lives; from birthdays, anniversaries to holidays. Now, mommies-to-be in the UK are following North American mommies-to-be, by having cakes at their baby showers that reveal the sex of the baby.  At the first slice, the cake reveals that the inside is pink if the mommy-to-be is expecting a girl and blue if it is a boy.

In the US expectant mommies have gone as far as have the doctor write the sex on a note, seal it in an envelope and ask the baker to open the envelope and be the only person to know the sex of the baby, beside the doctor, before the baby shower – even the parents-to-be are surprised.

 Some people in the UK have the cake specially made with the secret sealed inside an envelope set between layers, but don’t coordinate with the color of the cake. I think it is much cuter to have the actual cake colored to represent the gender of the baby. If it were twins, let’s say boy and girl, you could do half pink, half blue. But some mommies prefer the anticipation of having to open the envelope, they don’t want everyone to know the gender at the first slice.

The “baby cake” trend is spreading like wild fire in the UK and many bakeries are now including them on their websites.

Now, besides this cute idea for revealing the sex of their babies, some mommies-to-be found it interesting to arrive at the shower dressed in the color to reveal the sex, pink or blue. In the US, the cakes have been so popular that the mommies-to-be are now calling the parties “gender reveal parties” and no longer a “baby showers”.

Back when I was pregnant with my boys, the question used to be “When is it due?”, time has obviously changed mommies-to-be, as the new question is now likely to be “Is it a boy or girl?”

Prince William & Kate Middleton Celebrate Anniversary While Fans Await Royal Heir

Prince William & Kate Middleton Celebrate Anniversary While Fans Await Royal Heir

Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrate their first year of marriage this weekend while hopeful fans await the news that they are expecting a Royal heir. The couple are very popular in Britain, fans loved their fairytale wedding that drew two billion TV viewers – but they won’t be having any “splashy” event for their anniversary, the Royal couple are planning on keeping it private and low key.

The press has been speculating for quite some time now that there would be a new arrival in 2013, while succession rules were changed last year so that if the couple were to have a little girl, she would be equal with boys in the queue to the throne.

Royal fans think that a year is certainly enough time for there to be news of an impending Royal heir. Even Royal biographer Andrew Morton said around the time of their wedding: “If Kate is not pregnant in the next nine months, she’ll be defying 200 years of royal tradition.”

Regardless of how fans or the press feel, “William has said he’ll take things one step at a time,” according to Royal writer Robert Jobson.

Kate is 30, her biological clock is definitely ticking and we all know she is madly in love with Prince William and they have been together for eight years now, so I am sure the “Royal” news will be forthcoming, but not until after the Queen’s Jubilee, according to Royal expert Victoria Arbiter.

One final thing to keep in mind, until Clarence House declares it, Kate is not pregnant, no matter what the press says.
