This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Elton John and David Furnish were so happy to welcome their new son Elijah!
And since the time they'd had Zachary, this whole parenting thing has become all too easy for them! Elton says:
"We were excited at the prospect of Elijah’s birth as we were at the prospect of Zachary’s — but much less nervous."
"We kept a scrapbook for Zachary with all his scans, emails with the surrogate and key moments from the surrogacy, and we are doing the same for Elijah.
We want the boys to understand the spirit and love that was at the heart of the process."
A baby book! What a lovely idea! Maybe just wait until he's older to show him those delivery photos! LOLz!
Not that Elton and David need any parenting advice from us! David says:
"All we hope is that Zachary and Elijah are healthy and happy.
They will always be able to rely on us for total love and support, and we hope they grow up to live their own lives and be who they want to be, not who we want them to be."
Spoken like a true expert!
