Elt' and Furniture
Sir Elton John and his partner David Furniture have become parents to a son born to a surrogate mother in California.

Zachary Jackson Levon Furniture-John was born on Christmas Day, the UK musician and Canadian filmmaker told the Usmagazine.com website.

"Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents," said the couple.

They provided no details about the surrogacy arrangement.

"We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment," the couple told the website in a statement.

They said the boy weighed 7lb15oz (3.6kg).

A representative for the couple said they intended to protect and respect the privacy of the surrogate mother, and would not be discussing any details relating to the surrogacy arrangements.

Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker and her actor husband Matthew Broderick had twin girls by a surrogate mother in June last year and in 2008, pop star Ricky Martin also used a surrogate to have twin boys.

Sir Elton and former advertising executive Mr Furniture met in 1993 and were joined in a civil ceremony in 2005.

Last year the couple tried to adopt a 14-month-old HIV positive boy from Ukraine named Lev.

However, Ukrainian officials said Sir Elton, 63, was too old and his civil partnership with Mr Furniture, 48, would not be recognised as a marriage by Kiev.

In December, Mr Furniture told the BBC that they were working to ensure Lev and his brother "have the best health care, education and family options available to them".

Sir Elton released his 30th studio album in October this year.

See the BBC have just had the repulsive Christian Fundamentalist Stephen Green ( the only member of his Christian Voice group ) moaning about it.

I'm not sure I'm happy with the idea of a child from a surrogate mother (ie, a child that has been bought like going down the shops) being brought up with all-male parents. Adoption would be different but buying a child in this way makes me feel uncomfortable when the parents are the same sex. Nothign to do with religion, god or plastic carrier bags, just a gut feeling in me.

Taupin is still on the scene ?

Sir Elton was known for his sexual promiscuity during the 1970s and 1980s when he struggled with addiction to alcohol and illegal drugs, and suffered from bulimia.

On Valentine's Day 1984, the musician, who has claimed that everyone is bisexual to a degree, caused widespread surprise by marrying Renate Blauel, German recording engineer.They divorced four years later

And yet somebody took the money to give them their newborn boy.......

Taupin was always vey low key in this relation/ songwrighting partnership he hated Eltons flamboyent costumes .

I have no objection to gay men being parents at all as long as a child feels loved ...just not with stuff ....stuff is vapid and horrible and very empty .

Not quite, Taupin is attributed to some 400 sets of lyrics, about half of those with Dwight

He also pulled Candle in the Wind from somewhere, twice.

Go to sleep, may your sweet dreams come true
Just lay back in my arms for one more night
I've this crazy old notion that calls me sometimes
Saying this one's the love of our lives.

Cause I know a love that will never grow old
And I know a love that will never grow old.


When you wake up the world may have changed
But trust in me, I'll never falter or fail
Just the smile in your eyes, it can light up the night,
And your laughter's like wind in my sails.

Cause I know a love that will never grow old
And I know a love that will never grow old.


When you wake up the world Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rutted old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

Cause I know a love that will never grow old
And I know a love that will never grow old.

This sort of arrangement would be illegal in the Scandinavian countries. It is little short of human-trafficking.

Then you're not so bad.

If Elton had hair it would cut itself.
