Yes! It's true!
What a lucky kid!
When asked about rumors of Lady GaGa being chosen as godmother to his child, David responded:
"We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good! I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about godparents later on."
We are going to take that line about the good sources as a definite YES!
This comes as no surprise to us because the Elton and GaGa have become close friends since the last year's Grammy Awards and he has praised her as the Queen of Pop.
David also had plen-ty of nice things to say about her as well.
Check out this excerpt from the interview:
Q: Do you believe Lady Gaga has the potential to influence today’s generation in the same way Madonna and Elton have?
A: Absolutely. The strongest thing that Gaga has—putting her amazing musical talent aside—is that she has such a connection with her fans. She has 25 million followers on Facebook and she communicates to fans [via] Twitter in a regular, ongoing way.
Q: Her knowledge of civil and human rights is impressive. What do you think about the type of messages she sends out to her fans?
A: She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all [benefit] from individuality. That’s the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love.
Q: And you’d like that kind of message to be around your family?
A: Absolutely. Elton and I don’t talk about what we hope Zachary grows up to be—musician, doctor or whatever. We just hope he grows up to be happy and that he’s able to do what he wants to do in life and has the freedom to take whatever path.
Sounds like Elton, David, Zachary and GaGa will be one big, happy family that is a walking, talking example of what it means to accept people for who they are!
We can't wait for the official announcement because we want to know who the godfather will be!
