The singer admitted he was worried he wouldn't be able to love another child as much as his first son, but said that Elijah “completes our family in a most precious and perfect way” and says the arrival of their second child was "far less scary than the first time around."

"I have learned that a parent's capacity for love is endless," he told the magazine. "When another child is born, our depth of love just grows deeper and wider, so it was very emotional."

The identity of the California-based surrogate mother a closely guarded secret and the 65-year-old star said he intends to keep it that way.

“She is a wonderful, kind and loving woman, who we love like a sister.

“We have a very close bond with her and were in constant touch throughout the pregnancy, getting updates, seeing scans and sharing all the little details that make those nine months so exciting.

“She has given us two amazing gifts and we in turn have a duty of care to her and are fiercely protective of her anonymity.”

It has not been revealed if it is Elton or David who is Elijah's biological father but on Zachary's birth certificate, Sir Elton is named as 'father' and David as 'mother'.
