Elton John and David Furnish Welcome Son Number Two for 'Perfect' Family

Elton John and David Furnish entered a civil partnership way back in 2005, and had already been together by then since 1993. Five years after their low key ceremony in Berkshire, they opted to start having children, choosing the option of a surrogate mother over adoption. Their first child Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in December 2010, and now, two years later, they have welcomed their second son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John, to the world. 

Elton broke the news to Hello Magazine. "Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable," he told the paper. "The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement." 

The couple wanted Zachary to have a sibling, because "it's difficult to be an only child," they said, also because of the added difficulties of having famous parents. 

There is a lot of criticism levied at gay couples who opt to have children, but both David and Elton are clued up and ready for the problems their children may face. "I know when he goes to school there's going to be an awful lot of pressure, and I know he's going to have people saying, 'You don't have a mummy.' ...It's going to happen. We talked about it before we had him. I want someone to be at his side and back him up. We shall see."

hi, good luck okay! the deceiveptions' are not relationships to sir elton john, I've been there before, not a man only a liar, as life passes by, we don't know really why all the comotion, not like the 70's they never loaded a train full of logs, trees, like we did. the accident on richter on cadder is from slippery road some woman says, other say it is from drunkerd driver, as Christ see's anything dead is not for life, they survived, but do you think as we exchange ideas that they the mentally ill rcmp would set up an accident to throw over?someone just said on purpose by someone? how can anyone set up a killed roadway residential living.? thats' very crazy how strange ideas are not of God. life isn't free. I heard the news of how people are. I only listen to the radio, try to recover this aweful cold sore throat from the cold, i had nothing to do with anyone in Vancouver , only talking to that person I visited becuz I ended up getting robbed and knowing the invitation was there I had his email from long time ago, exchanged thoughts only of ordinary english + my ukrainian flag. there was no romance. not at all. so I don't really know that when he said while visiting he's got to go out to do errands if its the same person , course it has to be right?! as I don't remember cuz I was hit on the backpack robbed in va? broke my ankle 3 days ago on the ice, these people new ones here aren 't doing their jobs, its not a race track for one thing, there is dirty illegal business of NO they can't do anything they want. thats not the real rcmp. a man in clothing in a car he never bought, why are they gameing socieity? unpredictable. buy a car of your own if you want to drive wrecklessly or slippery at that speed enough to kill someone, Oh.I thought of the old saying my dad told me as he's in quaranteened there in the old folks home, you have to buy a cow before you can milk it. I luckyily told Andr that I wasn't I thought anyhow that I couldn't go cuz I am a christian, I did build my life up to be wholesomely alone, I have not been with anyone now my son is 20 years old on the january 31st. I thought Oh my God how awesome you and your friend there have a child on Ukrainain New Years ' Eve. how nocturnal that is.I am going to tell Andr who kept from the beginning when I first seen him, I dont' know him 10 years ago, gave me the email, as become a friend he wanted to marry me, so I said No I have to go to my kids who were abducted at that time, I did n't find them still in winnipeg I got off the bus and went to my farm, he wrote me sometimes, at REgina 10 years ago, I am telling you this cuz I thought he'ld go to a woman quickly by the washroom from the behind? don't know,, seems like a catch for someone else? so write sometimes. so then meet up with this person he asked me to come over for a date, nothing happened cuz I lost my backpack and searched for stolen photographs from expensive farmer photograph of dads' sundown farm, did not find them, distraut as hell, I want that back, I only rested at andre's he's saying he has a brother or something, greedy family things going on that same fight for family home back home in Toronto. I left him only with a nothing happened, honestly. so I noticed that he liked the messasge from the grapes wine frozen, seems that maybe someone or somehow it got cyberspaced possibly, he came out there are capri prostitutes ring with the dirty rcmp, who like prositition ringed women who are helping themselves to whores someone is I don't know, then that man came out someone did, I dont' know. so anyhow capri loked like he was there driving by when I was walking for coffee. whores are very muchl liked by dirty men anywhere I guess, stealing from the rich farmers, like ourselves cars, trucks, family life, from the past, and here too whores making their way to innocent family life of take down the husband, or the family father, to steal with the corrupted thief who pretends not to understand but patronizes the prostitute them only, I am a farmer with the abducted kids, its not their kids, killing women with a rape on my daughter from 2003 or so from the so called rcmp, he's afucken filthy whore, not a man even to speak of. they need to stop the gunman with no rights to show up in family home of children and family life of homeowner. maybe you could do something about dirty men who are too conceity thats why they are bank robbers getting into banks, cuz there's no good men in those jobs. roadway accidents or home invasion in this valley of 43 or something strange, stealing my car is the worst thing that is hey they didn't return the vehicle they help the thief. making an identity of theft for others' thinking its their vehicle. that is not the law. somebody should change their attitudes, the bad man is getting away with theft becuz he thinks he can get away with it. I wouldn't give it to you. I can't do anything to a thief, cuz the thief like ed makimits from 1465 athans street who killed my father with a wrench break and enter 10 years ago, I was targeted for home. its not their home. why are they going to us for?its not their Canada. they are unitied states transients who rent dumps then go steal with of a target with mongaloids retarded tatooed, sounds to me like gangsters helping themselvse to how do you call that from going to my place like that? My God thats not Canada, we don't get pushed around or man handled for use of murderers from edmonton, this is a computer game that I play, the Solitaire= Ive got Queen of diamonds appears, where there is a Queen of diamonds there is like a bee you'll find the leader an Ace. I've got an Ace of diamonds, the Ace in the hole quickly by computer. I noticed the story on t.v.ending in Tyunwin, its a very nice documentary of England, and one of Ireland, very nice story, they lived that. see if you can find the oracle of the Ace in the hole. I had almost a broken heart of deceit. but it in all honesty doens't apply to me, I know that. I was gone to live with my daughter/son. are people being that lower graded. its a abduction group with a pimp named kirsten williams a whore of clarences. a peter klassen act of theft, use and abuse and steal from a Sundown cowgirl.I don't know who came back, from that departure In VAncovuer, but I guess I was quiet enough nothing to happen. I don't know really but I know he sohounded by maybe his own family problems, cleaving to me is not give me anything. I am was. a good people he says. advanceing me for a date, but still why leave the room I said. he only asked me if I slept when he came back. How do I know it was not to use me, I told him. so I left borrowing money to get home, I have paid back most of it, only 20 to go. A mother was kileld in leaded to be killed in Ontario, with two children suicide can bemade to happend, I really think that the evil husband or wickedness of dropping off wife and kids to die that way, is this possible look to see how he left her for the wolves to eat her and her kids. they 3 died. a vulnerable drug enduced maybe a crazed doctor? I don't know, but anyone who sets up a woman with kids is sick.!! very sad. adverting isn't allowed either. uncle steve sophronuik said of clarence that he set me up. I am the money farmer from the wants of clarence. he's too filthy evil. the dirty man. I don't like him, I told him all the time, I'm not your wife. I had a dream last night about dad, we went back home, to Bertram street. the other dream was dad was standing in the field of his Sundown farm. why are there nice VW's green bought for me, then the theif is stold it from me. I want a new nationaal law that any car theifing comes to steal my vehicle they need to know that it kills a person. so why sholdn't they get destroyed back? and the other law is when mongaloid retarded bankrobber comes to bertram street ed makimits a total sgtranger, and paul graham to kill break an arm, rape and steal, ( remember its all forgotten and over 10 years ago, A Mother is being MOTHER law of Canada, and swanson was kileld by thugstres and quacks. hey tide it. the news last night I was talking to God not that but the shark came to the boat, you see sir elton john how smart the sharks are? they came to the boat to hit it. remember? Jaws? the movie the truth of why? sorry if anything bothers you, I heard you're knitting like my mother! well, I am enough, I take care of my ankle so lucky I put it back together, I was Divorced 20 years ago. why don't they leave my children and family alone? hells angels made nothing. regina has to be warned not to not train family life is homeowner of growing old and up forever. Like my mother said nettei says there was nobody there. I ride a bicycle . how about a hanging rope like John Wayne used to do? hang the bad man a rappists go to die in the jail somehow or hang them up in jail for robbing off vehicle, or tresspassing to rape? they all really need jail. the police don't make the law. they enforce it. but this is ridiculous unGodly evil interaction that can't be. useless loss of life. that is not theirs to decide.course the bankrobber gets destroyed in the bank like that edmakimits should be, don't have such a fitlhy retard go to england. he's a murderer. and someone said on the radio that lohee uyour girlfriend wanted to burn you down. that retarded con artist actress from judge / thef by the sounds of it he is, using the con job of whore prostitute to get to people who are rich? definately stalling to make trouble with courtroom con cover up con artistry. I thin k so. so I thought I;old tell you this. sorry for the news, I won't write again. converts shouldn't be allowed in Kelowna. dozens of loggers driving by a mexicans working herer, who are they kidding? I am from here for Gods' sake. whore melody doesn' get sonjia and geroges'/s home or bordies home from us.? her too a con job! bordies' dead becuz of a car/truck that roberton from pembina highway with tom karascony senda thief to stalk and rape and steal cars and killwomen. he's a poor whore himself adultary terrible demonics. I never seen them for 15 years and they bother with hitman roberton. pembina highway car thief. I lost wieght, I'm fine. I can handle trouble makers. Good luck to you. Look at that sunshine. I won't go to anybody. I decided 10 years ago. my son's birthday is 20 now,mama's boy.only. tasha will take him to me still. My dad's horse and buggy we ride to Sundown and back to the burned down house. I heard the wind howelling it was bad cold like 50 below. I have a sore throat, did they forget that a women is human?human I mean my aches and pains have to feel it out. I do acknowledge the facts' of life. they're not, not the rcmp or the police. I know they are going to do drug busts taking rifles and guns from people. in catching them, how come this is going on?the real police was in hiit, he's Gods' holy, I couldn't get out to the road, I was sick with broken ankle. they sure go to a lot of trouble to get nothing done. I was 15 in vancouver over 30 years ago. I should have stayed in there.Now dad says I have tomove my house out. like since when is my work money house purchases anybody's business? its not. they all have to mind their own business. own place to go. they have no opinion, and they have the judge says they have NO PERMISSION.! its not their place to be all Peeping Toms'. take care, be who you are. I'm hoping your'e very happy with your life. I am the bigger fan in life. we don't know everything. they had to illiminate the enemy the bad man. I beg your pardon? take care. I hope this doens't bother, you, and don't send anyone to me, cuz I just wanted you to know that life is for living but here, its very strange that immigrants refugees are treated better than homeowners and their family, especially farmerduaghter.
