Elton John - Happy father Elton John
Sir Elton John is the happiest he has even been now he and partner David Furnish are parents.
Sir Elton John has never been happier since he became a father.
The 66-year-old singer says starting a family and becoming a father to sons Zachary, two, and eight-month-old Elijah with his husband David Furnish has been better than all his hit records put together.
He enthused: ''I have never been happier than now, with David and our two wonderful sons.''
Asked about the best phone call of his life, Elton replied: ''The call that told David and me our surrogate was pregnant with Zachary.''
The 'Your Song' hitmaker went on to say that having children - who were both born via the same surrogate mother - has been the most poignant experience of his life.
Quizzed about what every man should do before he dies, Elton said: ''Witnessing the birth of a child.''
The pop icon has overhauled his party lifestyle since settling down with David - who he wed in 2005 - but is finding it hard to curb his spending.
Elton told Britain's GQ magazine: ''Nowadays it's just spending - I've given everything else up. [My biggest extravagance is] buying beautiful things.''
