Sir Elton John and David Furnish are fathers again, having welcomed a second son via a surrogate mother.
Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born Friday in Los Angeles, and weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces. The baby joins big brother Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, 2.
“The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way,” the couple told Hello!.
“It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.”

The British singer had previously spoken about his desire to expand their family, saying “I think it’s difficult to be an only child, and to be an only child of someone famous. I want Zachary to have a sibling.”
John, 65, and Furnish, 50, were married in 2005 after more than a decade together.
