Elton John - Sir Elton: 'I Won't Spoil My Son'

SIR ELTON JOHN is adamant he will teach his son ZACHARY "discipline and good manners" so he won't grow up to be a spoiled showbiz child.
The Rocket Man and his partner David Furnish welcomed the tot via surrogate mother last month (Dec10), and they have now shown him off in their first family photoshoot.
Sir Elton admits that despite his wealth and reputation for lavish spending, he doesn't want to spoil Zachary "materially", while Furnish insists he wants the youngster to learn "real working-class values" like his fathers.
Elton tells Britain's OK! magazine, "I'm ready to have a child and lavish my love on our son and not spoil him but be there for him and to advise him.... We don't want to spoil him materially, although he's already been spoiled rotten by people buying him stuff. We just want to give him some wisdom... spoil him with love."
Furnish adds, "(I want him to learn) the value of hard work. Nothing is handed to you. I'm sure, as he grows he might get a sense of entitlement, and I want to make sure he doesn't."
