After denying a report to the effect last week, Elton John and his partner David Furnish are reportedly dads again. 

Hello! magazine reports the 65-year-old rocker and his 50-year-old partner have confirmed they have a second son. The report says eight-pound, four-ounce Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born on Friday, January 11 in Los Angeles, via a surrogate.

The magazine quotes John and Furnish as stating, ”Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.”

The couple’s other son, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, was born on Christmas Day, 2010.
