Elton John and David Furnish welcome second child Elijah Joseph Daniel
"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable," John and Furnish tell Hello! in a 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."
Elijah was born via a surrogate, weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
Last year, John said that he and Furnish hoped to give Zachary a companion. "I think it's difficult to be an only child, and to be an only child of someone famous," he said. "I want Zachary to have a sibling."
Furnish and John began dating in 1993. They wed in 2005.
