Sir Elton John admits he used to find children ''annoying'' until he experienced the joys of fatherhood for himself.
Sir Elton John thought children were ''annoying'' until he had his own - and now he cherishes every minute with them.
The 'Rocket Man' hitmaker and his husband David Furnish welcomed baby son Elijah Joseph into their family in January, a brother for two-year-old Zachary, and he admits having the kids - who were born via a surrogate - has been the best thing that's ever happened in his life.
He said: ''I used to think kids were annoying, but the boys are the best thing that's ever happened to us.''
The couple enjoy nothing more than relaxing at home with their two sons and spending quality time together as a family.
Speaking in the new issue of Closer magazine, Elton said: ''We live in a big house all on one floor and hang out in the living room together.''
The singer threw his annual Oscars party in Los Angeles in February and this year little Zachary spent an hour enjoying the occasion and he loved dressing up the same as one of his fathers.
Speaking at the bash, Elton said: ''Zachary couldn't wait to wear a little tuxedo - just like David.''
