Elton John’s second child has arrived. The singer and his partner David Furnish welcomed their second son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John, via a surrogate last Friday, People reports.
Baby Elijah was born at 6:40 p.m and weighed in at 8 lbs., 4 oz.
The couple released a statement. “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,” they said.
“It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.”
