Sir Elton John is now the proud dad of two.
He and David Furnish welcomed a baby boy on January 11, the legendary musician confirmed on his website.
Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John arrived in Los Angeles via surrogate that Friday evening, weighing in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable," John and Furnish said in a joint statement. "The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."
