Sir Elton John And David Furnish To Have Baby Number Two

Elton John and his partner David Furnish are set to become parents for the second time as a surrogate is believed to be pregnant with their child.

Elton and David already have a little boy Zachary Furnish-John, who was born two years ago on Christmas Day to the same surrogate.

The surrogate mum is believed to live in California, but her identity will never be revealed. The pair met her through a surrogate parent agency in the US. She is thought to be several months pregnant already but there is no news on a due date or if she is expecting a boy or girl.

A source close to the couple told the Sun: "Elton and David love this lady like a sister and they feel indebted to her for life. Naturally she has been well rewarded. But her identity will never be revealed."

Only a few weeks ago Elton said he was hoping to have more children and expand his family, saying that he didn't want his son to grow up as an only child.

While the pair are sure to be making plans ahead of the new arrival, it is also business as usual for Elton, who has headed to Australia to start his latest sell-out tour. Elton will then travel across Asia before completing his latest string of shows in Germany next September.
