Elton John and husband David Furnish have welcomed a second son, Hello! Magazine reports.
Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born via surrogate in Los Angeles at 6:40pm on Friday January 11, 2013, and he weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
The proud parents said in a statement to the mag, "Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. 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."
John and Furnish got married in 2005 after 12 years together, and they welcomed son Zachary in December 2010. Just a few months ago, the 65-year-old singer opened up about expanding their family. "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."
