Elton John Gives Baby Elijah The Giggles

Elton John gives baby Elijah the giggles

Elton John has proved what an old softie he is around his new baby son in a series of heart-melting photos.

The father-and-son were enjoying some quality time together as they took a relaxing boat-ride through Venice.

Baby Elijah - who is just four-months-old - was in fits of giggles as his 66-year-old dad pulled a variety of faces throughout the trip.

Elton and his partner David Furnish, 50, were later spotted having some child-free time at the nearby Monaco hotel.

Following Elijah's birth in January, David told reporters that the 'reality' of having two sons was 'almost unbelievable' for the pair.

The couple are also proud dads to toddler Zachary, who was born on Christmas day in 2010.
