Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish have reportedly become fathers for the second time.
According to the New York Post's Page Six column, the pair have added to their brood after their California-based surrogate gave birth.
The unnamed surrogate - who is said to be the same woman who delivered their first son, Zachary on Christmas Day 2010 - is said to be a good friend of the couple.
A source said: "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. They are over the moon."
A spokesperson for the singer has refused to confirm the reports, telling Page Six: "We never discuss our clients' personal lives."
