To Sir Elton John and David Furnish, December is an important month for family milestones including first, their civil marriage which took place in December, 2005, and secondly, the birth of their son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John which happened on December 25, 2010.
And now the first photo of baby Zachary is available through Us Weekly who John and Furnish invited to take and share with the world.

Elton and David’s son weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces and was born via a surrogate mother. Regarding holding their son for the very first time, Elton told Us Weekly, “I’ve never felt anything like it in my life. You’re so awestruck. What can you say? You take it in. The feeling, the joy, the warmth of his body, his breathing…I will never forget that experience ever.”
Although the couple tried to adopt an HIV positive Ukrainian boy and his brother in 2009, they were rejected based on John’s age and due to Ukraine not recognizing civil marriages. Elton and David have pledged to support both boys financially despite that fact.
Another celebrity baby boy was born to parents Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom on January 6, 2010 and the first photo of Flynn became available on January 18.

On her organic website, Kora Organics, Miranda wrote and shared the following: “On the 6th of January I gave birth to our beautiful little son Flynn. He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy). I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him.”
“We are so happy and are enjoying our time together as a family. [Flynn] is our little ray of sunshine. Thank you everyone for your beautiful well wishes and your lovely thoughts and comments. I haven’t had a lot of time to read many comments or to respond, but please know I will when I get a chance.”
Congratulations to both couples!
