Elton John talks about his son with David Furnish
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: ‘US Weekly’ has an extensive interview with new dads Elton John and David Furnish whose son was born on Christmas Day.
The couple is obviously over the moon with the addition of Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John. I detect a softness in Elton that sometimes seemed to be missing in recent years when he could come off as downright bitchy at times.
“I think he’s getting more handsome by the day,” a glowing Elton says of the baby. “When babies come out, they all look a bit like Winston Churchill, their faces all scrunched up! And every day his hair is growing. It was quite dark brown when he first came out, and now it’s going blond. … It’s a constant wonder that someone that small could be so strong. The lust for life, the craving for life when he first came out … that little thing could survive so many things. It’s just phenomenal.”
Adds David: “His little eyes open wider every day and for longer periods of time. He holds your eye contact when you sing to him and dance with him. He completely knows both of us. We put him into our arms and he stops crying because it’s the scent he knows. The fact that we spend hours and hours with him, feeding him, rocking him – we’re his fathers!”
Who is biological father? They do not know!
David: “We both contributed. For the time being, we don’t have a clue! We look at him every day. At the moment, he has Elton’s nose … and my hands. Neither of us cares. He’s our child. The important thing is that he’s healthy and happy and loved.”
David on Elton as a dad: “What continually amazes me about Elton is his capacity to grow and change. He’s proving to be a natural! I thought it might be awkward – but [he’s]diving diving in, rolling [his] sleeves up. I’ve seen people too scared to hold babies. He holds the baby the right way, supporting his neck. He knows how to hold the bottle so he doesn’t get too much gas. He’s not like, ‘Am I doing this right?’ He’s just got it.”
Will they have more kids?
