Elton John To Adopt?

That photo is too precious!

After touring a Ukrainian orphanage in keeping with the efforts of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, baby Lev has stolen the hearts of Sir Elton and his partner, David Furnish.

Elton said that Furnish "always wanted to adopt a child and I always said no, because I am 62 and because of the traveling I do." But since meeting the adorable Ukrainian toddler, he's had a change of heart!

The recent death of Elton's friend, keyboardist Guy Babylon, has partly inspired his decision to adopt because "what better opportunity to replace someone I lost than to replace him with someone I can give a future to."

The couple could face some obstacles in adopting from the Ukraine, but we wish them the best of luck!

Little Lev sure looks happy in the arms of Poppa Elton!

    You're a bit late as usual, Yahoo OMG has already posted that the Ukranian government said no because Elton is too old and is unmarried (Ukranian govt doesn't recognize gay marriage). Even if the marriage thing weren't an issue, they can't change the fact that he doesn't meet the requirement that the parent be no more than 45 years old than the child.

    I love Elton John. I just bought his greatest hits package. He's the best. He's got a heart of gold. He's one of the finest musicians ever. He's a brilliant pianist and an under-rated vocalist. I wish people would stop giving him flak for being gay. At least he's not a child molester.

    It sends shivers up my spine seeing that creepy queer with that cute little boy.

    I like Elton and I think any child would be very lucky to be adopted by him.

    Awwww Elton would make a fantastic father!!

    Re: TexasBadBoy – fuck you Texas(wanna-be)BadBoy,…who the fuck are you to call him a creep and to judge wethere he can be a loving parent?? He is gay, not a creep and rich as fuck,…that kid would have the best life money could buy and two extremly loving and dotting parents. You are just jealous cause you had to grow up in a trailer and your parents were probly also first cousins! Bahahaha,…loser!

    i think elton would make a wonderfull father. i am a firm believer in gay rights. i believe as long as the house hold is a good one, that no one should be stopped from adopting a child. In America we will willingly adopt and foster children out to people who treat them like garbage- but we will not allow a happy, responsible gay couple to adopt a child. And its a shame that the Ukranian govt is just as small minded. And yes I do understand that being a good parent doesnt matter if you're gay or straight, but it also shouldnt be the deciding factor in it either.

    this is great. i think adoption is always a great way to have a child. the world is over populated as it is, so adoption cuts back on procreation and gives a lil angel a home and love that they deserve!

    luv Elton…
    itz
    an effen
    great idea♥♥]]

    This is really cute! =D

    aww bless his heart for choosing a child from Ukraine - the people have such a fatalistic outlook on life there.



  15. 15

    Every child deserves loving parents, regardless of the parents’ sexual orientation. I think this child would have so much more of a chance in life to be all he can be if Sir Elton and his partner could adopt him. And, I certainly hope the arrogant, pride-based Ukrainian bureaucracy doesn’t block the adoption. Saving one child at a time is the best place to start and the best example to set. Just think of all the good this child could do for his homeland after being raised by philanthropists like Sir Elton and Mr. Furnish and being their sole heir.

    CONGRATS!! Little Lev is SO cute, and I ~*absoultley*~ LOOOVE Elton!!



  17. 17

    I hope he can adopt…but I'm sure he'll have a LOT of obstacles… I think he and his partner would make good parents…

    Your sister Barbara who does this site is slow as usual. This is old news. So any of you writing to Perez specifically, forget about him reading it. His sister might though.

    I agree with the ukrainian government he is just too old to be a good parent grand parent yeah but parent hell no. nothing to do with his sexual preference he is just too old

    To Texas Bad Boy:
    That statement is truly disgusting. You have never met him and have no idea who he is. I've grown weary of the ignorance people live with. There is no need for your use of homophobic slurs. Don't people realize when they say things like that, they only look stupid and intolerant?

    You still refer to gay people as "queer'?
    I'm guessing that you still call black people "colored"?
    Do yourself a favor. Open your mind and step into the 21st century.

    I support Elton and his partner's decision to adopt COMPLETELY.
    This dear little boy would be given the chance for a better life.

    I'm on the fence about Elton John adopting a gayby only because I'm concerned about the future asskickings he's going to get on the playground for wearing Liberace style Garranimals.



  32. 32

    he's too old, too unhealthy, too superficial and self-centered. give it a pass, grandpa.



  33. 33

    awh., i feel bad that he didnt get to adopt. he should adopt somewhere else then that allows him too & recoqnizes that he can provide for a child. i hope he finds a kid to give a future to., that kid will live in luxury.! lol.



  34. 34

    Re: Yellow Peeps – i so agree with you on this., peeps.! it saddens me to see people to still act like they did 50 years ago.



  35. 35

    I'd have no problem with it but Elton's own comment about "replace someone that I lost" bothers me. You cannot replace people. Maybe it was Elton's grief talking but you don't adopt a baby to "replace" a dead friend, a dead child, etc If Elton just used the wrong words, then I hope he is able to adopt a baby.



  36. 36

    Awwwwww! :D you go girl!



  37. 37

    Adorable pic! Best wishes Elton John!



  38. 38

    I always thought Elton was a father already to a daughter from his very
    brief marriage to a woman a hundred years ago—wasn't she Austrailian?



  39. 39

    I say go for it!



  40. 40

    Elton's the best. I hope he and David manage to adopt little Lev, he does look a bit like Elton! he's too cute.

    Good luck Elton and David.



  41. 41

    I absolutely LOVE Elton! His greatest hits double album never is always in my car. He has always been so loving and giving and would make a wonderful father!

    If they need a nanny I am super with children and I can keep my mouth shut, no tabloid could break me!!!! Just set me up in a cool little cottage in Ireland, the kids would love it there (well I would anyway)
