Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish have welcomed their second child – a son named Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John.
The new addition to their family was born in Las Vegas last Friday via a surrogate mother.
“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,” the couple told Hello! magazine.
“Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable.”
The pair, whose son Zachary was born two years ago, are said to have used the same unnamed California-based surrogate mother.
They have chosen to not reveal the identity of the woman.
