Elton John - Sir Elton Poses For Family Portrait With New Son

SIR ELTON JOHN has posed for his first public photograph with his newborn son for a U.K. magazine, and revealed he was present throughout the birth.
The Rocket Man and his partner David Furnish welcomed a son called Zachary on Christmas Day (25Dec10) via a surrogate mother, a year after they were denied the chance to adopt a tot from the Ukraine.
After a month of being new dads, the couple has now posed for a family portrait for Britain's OK! magazine, showing off their tiny tot, who is seen wearing a miniature pair of dungarees.
The superstar also confirmed he was present at the birth, and couldn't believe how fast his child arrived into the world.
He tells the magazine, "He shot out like a rocket. There just aren't proper words to describe that feeling. It's indescribable. It was just, 'We have a son!'"
And the singer admits he broke down in tears when they brought their baby home for the first time, he adds, "People ask, 'Did you cry (during the birth)? You must have been so emotional?' And I say no, because it was all so quick. When I cried was when we brought him home Monday morning at 8.30am. We hadn't had time to celebrate Christmas yet. We had a big tree, all the presents, and I said to David, put on some carols... As soon as it started, and I was holding Zachary in my arms, I cried."
