These fellas sure work fast…they just popped out lil Zachary last week:
Sir Elton John and David Furnish are considering plans to become parents to a second child. The couple’s son Zachary was born only a week ago, on Christmas Day, but friends say the pair have already discussed adding to their family. They say that film producer Mr Furnish – who has two brothers, Peter and John – is particularly keen for Zachary to have a brother or sister.
And 2013 has already been pencilled in as a possible date for the new arrival.
One friend said: ‘Elton and David are both revelling in parenthood. They feel that it has been a true blessing in their lives. ‘David, in particular, now wants more children. As one of three brothers himself, he believes it is important that Zachary is not an only child. ‘He and Elton have already been discussing it and David, especially, believes they should not wait too long.’
It is believed that Sir Elton, 63, and Mr Furnish, 48, have been pleased with the service provided by the Center for Surrogate Parenting (CSP) in Encino, California, which arranged the birth. As a result, it is likely that the same firm would be used for a future child. Zachary was born with the donor egg of one woman before a different woman acted as surrogate. According to CSP, couples often use the same surrogate and donor combination again for a second child, so that the second one is still biologically related to the first, even if the other man’s sperm is used. Also, in high-profile cases, if the surrogate has maintained confidentiality then celebrities would regard her as even less of a risk the second time.
Well, good for them…SMH.
