Elton John and David Furnish have spoken candidly about the fears they have for their son Zachary – admitting he could be treated differently because he has two dads, one of whom is super-famous pop star.
“We're going to have challenges, of course we are but we talked about that before we had him,” Elton revealed to Attitude magazine.
“The intent was about love”
Filmmaker David then went on to explain, “He's going to be potentially doubly stigmatised, because one of his parents is extremely famous and because he comes from two dads.
“We've taken advice from counsellors. We've put a whole scrapbook together about his creation, the people who were involved in the process and how the intent was about love.”
“Having a child has been magnificent”
While Elton and David have their concerns for their 13-month-old son’s future, they’ve also revealed that becoming parents changed their relationship for the better,
“We thought that the civil partnership brought us together, but having a child has been magnificent, and I never thought I would have a kid,” says Elt.
“I don't feel 65, which I will be next year. Now, having a kid there's so much more to do. There's so much more I want to see happen before I die.”
Awww, we love hearing Elton and David being so soppy – its so cute. And it makes a change from Madonnas-Golden-Globes-win/">dissing Madonna...
