Elton John Is The Biological Father Of Baby Zachary!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayBaby BlabberLove LineElton JohnLGBT


Well, that answers that question!

Although it was initially unclear as to whether or not Elton John or his husband, David Furnish, was the biological father of their new baby boy, Zachary - who was born to a surrogate mother - the child's birth certificate now reveals that the singer, in fact, is the official dad!

A source explains:

"Elton really wanted the child to have his genes. He has a god-given talent and wanted to pass that one to a child. And after years of discussion and thought, Elton and David decided together that Elton's sperm would be used. As the little boy grows it will become obvious that Elton is the biological dad. Elton has already purchased a $2 million adjoining apartment in Los Angeles to turn into the perfect nursery. Elton's son already has four round-the-clock nannies and his own chef. This little boy is going to want for nothing except a mom."

Just wonderful! And we're so thrilled that they gave the matter some thought and discussion before making their decision!

Not that it matters!

That little boy is going to grow up with so much love from his dads!

Congratulations again, you guys!

    Big surprise. I think we already knew who was the top in this relationship. : )

  2. 2

    And he WILL want for a mom. Most kids, when denied (one of the two sexes) a parent will be wanting to have that parent in their life. They grow up wondering what it would have been like to have two (sexed) parents like most of their friends. I have no doubt that Zach will want for nothing but that does not make him whole on the inside

  3. 3

    Don't know much about their situation but they should find a well rounded woman to influence the boys life. All children need maternal and paternal influences. Men (gay or not) simply do not have the maternal instincts that woman do and vice versa.

  4. 4

    why would a gay man have sex with a women? how would he get aroused if he's gay?

  5. 5

    this is wrong on so many le vels

  6. 6

    While it is true that Elton John is a musical talent, I hope that his sperm was talented enough to pass those genes on. Unfortunately it doesn't always work that way. I wish them both much happiness on their newest addition. May he always be happy and healthy.

  7. 7

    I am very surprised, Perez, that you are not pissed off at the comment "the only thing….want for is a Mom"

  8. 8

    His ego wouldn't have it any other way.

    Re: April 20th – I think they didn't see the "surrogate" part…stupid people blabbing and don't even read the article

    Congrats to Elton & family!!! I've been a big fan since the 70's and glad to see he has a new edition to his family!!! Kudos!!!

  12. 12

    The tone of the "source" was so catty!! "Elton has talent, so they used his sperm" bitchy much!
    "The child will want for nothing but a mom" Says who??? If they are good parents the kid will be happy no matter what.
    The only thing I take objection to is that Elton isn't a spring chicken. I think it's pretty irresposible and selfish of men over 60 to be fathering kids.

  13. 13

    Denying this child's RIGHT to a mother, this is fuckery.
    I hope EJ lets her be a part of this babe's life, I hope he allows this child his mother and I really hope she wants to be.
    Fucked up to assume it is alright to MAKE a child motherless regardless of how many "father's" he has.

  14. 14

    They should have taken David's sperm because Elton is 63. The father's age does make a difference. And four nannies… I realize they just want there kid to be well cared for, but a loving parent goes a long way…

    Perez, it's very disappointing that you can raise the issue of same sex marriage at the Miss America (yawn) event or whatever it was, and not make some kind comment about the "will want for a mum" I realize it's not your comment, rather it's a source, but some people are counting on your picking these things up. Come on. It might be early in CA (if you're there), but get the coffee on and drop down a gear Please!!

    While the people below are entitled to their opinions, they are in fact mono neural. Millions of kids are brought up without either a maternal or paternal influence in their lives (as I was). You need to wake up and smell the coffee. If I was an embryo and waiting for my birth parents, and was given the choice - you have mum and dad in a loving home here, or Elton and David, I'd bleedin well do backflips and embrionic cartwheels requesting to be Elton's kid. Ok, I'd be concerned about the male pattern baldness, but I'd live with it (pretty comfortably too).

    Come on people, it's 2011 and this is supposed to be the leading country in the free world, not the 1950s

  16. 16

    "This little boy is going to want for nothing except a mom" - that's a pretty sad statement. And, what makes Elton think his talent will pass on to his son. Talent like his is very rare. There's a greater likelihood that his kid won't have any musical talent at all…will probably wind up being just another spoiled rich kid.

    Re: biabiawhyuactinlikea – my apologies. Some here aren't even mono neural.

  18. 18

    I think it's very sad that a boy is FORCED to grow up without a MUM. You can be the best dad of the world, but a MUM is a MUM. And it's even more sad that they are treating that baby boy like a toy, leavin him with nannies in his OWN apartment………. :/

  19. 19

    note 4 nannies….cause Bitch wouldn't want to lose sleep. Lady GaGa with be the Godmother because she is the it girl.

    Child may want for nothing ….but 4 nannies and a chef ? How about a hands on dad? Sounds like the child will be treated like an object.

  20. 20

    Re: sid_vicious – You're a moron. You should be more concerned that there are children in your own country that aren't being loved and cared for and are abused by their mother and father! This baby is going to grow up in a loving home. Get over it.

  21. 21

    happy for elton as i read he is donating a lot to orphans living in russia and africa. but what makes me confused is the part with the chef. how does a baby need a chef? as far as i know babies need breasts to drink milk. but ok maybe eltons child with genius genes needs some 5 star meals already. question is, what will this baby be like ones it grows up, when it already has 4 nannies, a 2 million dollar apartment and god knows what else..a little over the top.

  22. 22

    Grow up feeling loved? With four nannies and his own chef? Sounds like he is going to be spoiled and going the right way for a smacked bottom, no pun intended…

  23. 23

    I guess this silences all those dumbasses who say gays can't have kids! NEWSFLASH: We're gay, not sterile!

  26. 26

    Re: sNaTcHqUaTcH – the fact that humans (gay or not) can have babies doesn't mean that they can be good parenst too. Look at this two. They're treating their baby like an object. Not only this baby doesn't have a mum, but he also lives with 4 nannies and a chef in his own apartment. If they really want to be parents, why are they acting like ones??? Can't they take care of their own baby like ALL the parents in the world? I think this whole story is just SAD, and I'm not saying that because we're talking about same sex parent.

  27. 27

    4 nannies for 1 child? That's a bit much. I can understand 1 because he does lead a busy life but 4 is ridiculous. If you wanted a kid so bad, you should probably do a little raising of it yourself. He may not want for much in material matters but the attention of his parents might be nice.

  28. 28

    I feel this was more about Elton's ego and wanting to pass on his "talent." He's too old and too self-absorbed to be an involved parent to a baby and later to a young son. Do you really think that he can provide any type of a fulfilling upbringing to this child. Will he also hire people to take him to soccer practice, little league, school plays, etc. It just isn't fair to this poor baby.

  29. 29

    so sad- I think it is really sad when two gay men choose to have a child and essentially deny their baby a mother. while they may be good parents, a baby needs a mom in my opinion- I have no problem with lesbian couples having babues- but it makes me really sad to think about a baby being taken from their mom at birth- or being born via surrogate and egg donor and just never having a mom! that is mean to the child. I have a bbay and he certainly needs me- even tho his dad (my husband) is an amazing father- my baby still needs his mom

  30. 30

    Arrogant much? To think you can choose to pass your talent on to a child…

    To quote the great Homer Simpson, "This isn't Gattaca."

  31. 31

    Re: Serena Loves MarioI am a moron?? Seriously?
    When do people in MY country purposely DENY a MOTHER to a child? Obviously if the child is in danger, totally different.
    However, you are complete fuck up if you think it is ok to do this to a child ON PURPOSE so you can have a play thing. You disgust me. Children need mothers, ask your Mario here.
    A loving home?? You twat. This man is one of the most arrogant, self centered people on earth. I would love to see him change a fucking diaper, you twit.
    And for the record, we have raised one adopted child from a highly abusive family, particularly his father.
    Carry on idiot, put your brain where your mouth is.

    Re: April 20th – are you dumb? or just looking for attention? According to the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics)
    A growing body of scientific literature demonstrates that children who grow up with 1 or 2 gay and/or lesbian parents fare as well in emotional, cognitive, social, and sexual functioning as do children whose parents are heterosexual. Children’s optimal development seems to be influenced more by the nature of the relationships and interactions within the family unit than by the particular structural form it takes.

  33. 33

    Once again according to AAP.

    Empirical evidence reveals in contrast that gay fathers have substantial evidence of nurturance and investment in their paternal role and no differences from heterosexual fathers in providing appropriate recreation, encouraging autonomy, or dealing with general problems of parenting. Compared with heterosexual fathers, gay fathers have been described to adhere to stricter disciplinary guidelines, to place greater emphasis on guidance and the development of cognitive skills, and to be more involved in their children’s activities.

    Re: AttFinch – listen here - i don't give a fuck what some report that you favor says. children need mothers and fathers - that is why it takes a woman and a man to make a baby. not two men and not two women……….

  35. 35

    Oh please. Do you know how many children in this country are growing up without a father? Huge numbers of single mother households out there where sons and daughters will grow up without fathers. So here we have a loved child with two caring dads. Families are not like your 1950's vision - father - mother - children. Try bringing yourselves into the 21st century. This is the new reality.

  36. 36

    Re: April 20th – right, because you're more of an expert on child rearing than the American Academy of Pediatrics. LOL!!! let's see, the AAP or someone who comments on Perez Hiltons blog. think i'll go with the AAP.

  37. 37

    if you're so desperate to have a child, for fucks sake, let it stay in your house with you???!!! a baby in its own appartment?? what? the? fuck? do you want to have this child to have any relationship to you? what the fuck for real

  38. 38

    Re: sid_vicious – Children need a loving home, not necessarily a MOTHER. Dumbass.
    Just because one man abused his child doesn't mean ALL men abuse their children. You're a fucking idiot. I pity your children.

  39. 39

    What if the kid doesn't get the "music" gene? What baby needs 4 ’round the clock nannies and a personal chef? What a hot mess this kid is going to turn into until his parents realize that ALL a baby needs is love and nurturing from it's parents.

    Re: aliveone2 – oh god woman, get off the hormone high..!

    You feel ok about two women (lesbians) having a child but not two men. Give me a fricken break. I agree women have to do a lot of carrying and pushing etc and worse can't drink for 9 months etc, but it's BECAUSE you carry the child and pop it out, you have this burst of hormones which creates the bond (ask a doctor).

    Men don't have that burst of hormones, but what's to say they can't love a child as much as a woman. It's complete shit.

  41. 41

    4 Nannies? Excellent. I don't care what your sexual orientation is, if you want to be a parent then bloody well be one! It's not just about money, you have to get in there, get your hands dirty, change diapers, feed them, pace the floor when they are up all hours crying, love them, guide them, discipline them, say no even when it's easier not to. BE A REAL PARENT!!!! 4 FREAKIN NANNIES, SERIOUSLY!

    Re: April 20th – And aren't we keeping you from bible study moron?

  44. 44

    Round the clock nannies?
    So… how is this kid going to be raised by his parents?

    Congrats to them either way, the nannies comment just really rubbed me the wrong way. As what a co worker said "why would I want to be famous? To have some stranger kiss my children good night? No thank you"

  45. 45

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – How is a loving home living with nannies in a different apartment, asshole? Is that a loving home to you? I feel bad for your parents. I hope you never have kids yourself, you are too self centered to give.
    My husband has been an awesome father to our kids, natural and adopted.
    My kids are awesome people, gay and heterosexual. They all needed a mother.

  46. 46

    Why can't they just get two children? One from each man. The boy should have a sibling!

  47. 47

    wow…4 full time nannies, I'm really feeling the love. You two probably should have stuck with getting a pet rather than a person.

  48. 48

    A chef ? For a newborn? LOL Nice gig.

  49. 49

    "This little boy is going to want for nothing except a mom." LOL I love the way that is just casually tossed in to the quote…like it isn't something horribly tragic.

  50. 50

    so his son is probably going to be a fat musical genius? he can only hope so…..hopefully the kid looks like the mother.

  51. 51

    That baby deserves a mother, mock it all you want but it's more important for a child to have a mother than a father.
    Secondly, that asshole is TOO OLD to father a baby. How long is he going to live to actually take care of it ? His sperm now must be like expired milk. Fucking selfish prick.

  52. 52

    What is a 100 year old man doing fathering a baby???

  53. 53

    considering al the unloved children with no parents or no homes in this country, NO ONE should be complaining about this child and EJ! This is the 21st century people. Get with it.

  54. 54

    wow guys, way to make anyone who lost their mother's at a young age feel like shit, now they'll never be "whole inside". smh
