Sir Elton John says his family is now complete after he became a parent for the second time.

He and partner David Furnish were “overwhelmed with happiness” at the birth of Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John.

He was born in Los Angeles on Friday, weighing in at 8lb 4oz, via a surrogate mother, according to reports. The couple has a two-year-old boy called Zachary. They said: “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.”

The baby shares his middle name, Daniel, with one of Sir Elton’s 1970s’ hit singles.
