Elton John & David Furnish show off 7-month-old cutie Zachary


I had kind of forgotten that Elton John and David Furnish were fathers now. Their baby boy, Zachary Jackson Levon, was born right around Christmas last year, which makes him seven months old now. These are photos of Elton, David and Zachary in St. Tropez today. I like that David is carrying him, just because… I’ve always thought that David was the one who wanted to be a dad. I don’t mean that in a harsh way or anything, and I’m not calling Elton a bad father. I just think that Elton was pretty happy with the way his life was, but that David wanted a baby and Elton went along. Soon after Zachary came along, Elton let it be known that they had already hired a bunch of nannies, that Zachary already had his own apartment, and that he (Elton) was already going back on tour.

I will say this – Zachary is super-cute! That is one chubby, adorable baby. My favorite baby (currently) is still Flynn Kerr-Bloom (he just looks gigantic and happy!), but Zachary is totally a doll. I think David looks great with him too – they look bonded and happy together. Elton seems more like, “Er, okay, what now?”

Oh – and Elton, David and Zachary are vacationing with Neil Patrick Harris, David Burthka and their twins. OMG! So many gay men, so many babies! I think Rick Santorum’s head just exploded.

PS… Zachary looks like Elton, right? Or am I imagining that?

    Aw! My huge smile is hurting my face…

  2. BellaLuna says:

    Elton has wanted a son for a long time now. Yes, the baby looks like him.

  3. mln76 says:

    Oh I love that they all vacationed together. I wish I could have Elton John or NPH for my gay papa/uncle :)
    Poor Elton looks more the grumpy grandpa.

  4. Maritza says:

    What an adorable baby! I would have liked to see Neil Patricks’s twins also.

  5. Calli Pygian says:

    Beautiful baby…I wanna lay some raspberries on those arms & legs, LOL.

  6. GossipVixen says:

    What a little cutie! The baby does look like Elton? Completely anonymous donation or did Elton provide the sperm?

  7. Chloe says:

    Aw indeed:)

  8. meg says:

    Holy Cow! Cuteness overload

  9. caitlinsmommy says:

    adorable! not much else to say about this!

  10. e.non says:

    good for elton & david … they just look so happy. and the baby is adorable. elton cracks me up after an early career of crazy costuming, he looks like any other pudgy middle-aged dad on vacay…

  11. Jaded says:

    Elton and David decided to use Elton’s wigglers to procreate – they wanted a musical genius in the family! And he is utterly chubberific!

  12. DethHammer says:

    That baby is adorable! I just wish Elton hadn’t already gone back on tour.

    By the way, Gaga is Zach’s godmother, and David said the reason why they chose Gaga was so she can guide Zach into the music business, and Gaga confirmed that, saying herself she will be his guide into the business.

    So basically what the three of them are saying is– if Zach wants to be an investment banker or biochemist, it won’t matter cause he will be in the music industry whether he likes it or not. Kind of sad. I mean, what happens if Zach turns out NOT to be a musical genius as they all want him to be? Genetics ain’t everything when it comes to talent. And it kind of sucks when your parents already have your entire future mapped out for you at 7 months old.

    They look quite happy and I am so glad for that but that car seat does not look like it is adjusted correctly. The chest clip looks too low. Maybe it is just the angle the pic was taken at but please Daddies. I know you love your son so please adjust the clip to armpit level.

    I might just be overly sensitive on this subject because I’ve heard far too many stories of babies being ejected from a vehicle because of this specific problem.

    Then again, judging by many celebrities behavior, I should just be happy that baby is in a car seat.

  14. gee says:

    That baby is a dream! So cute!

  15. Truthful says:

    he’s cute!

  16. beegeek says:

    Is that Neil Patrick Harris in the background? He has twins with his partner and they are adorable as well.

  17. Nanea says:

    Aww, how cute!

    Especially the close-up where little Zachary is furrowing his brow.

  18. NoFrank says:

    I can’t figure out if Zachary really looks like Elton or if it’s just that Elton kind of looks like a giant baby.

    He’s so adorable and so obviously loved and well-cared-for. I don’t know how anyone can look at them and say gay families shouldn’t be allowed to have babies or adopt. It makes my head hurt.

  19. Roma says:

    Yes that is NPH in the background!

    Aww, so many adorable babies with their gay daddies. I love it.

  20. Leticia says:

    I wish that Elton would have named him Levon, just so he could say in the delivery room, “he shall be Levon!”

  21. jen says:

    Awwww. So cute.

  22. Savannah says:

    What a looker! He completely stole my heart as I am sure he as stolen David and Elton’s. That is going to be one well dressed and manscaped baby! Congratulations guys!

  23. bluhare says:

    He is adorable, but he looks worried in a couple of those pics!

    NPH’s twins are cute on legs as well. He’s posted a couple of snaps and I want to just eat them up.

    But I’m with you, Kaiser. Flynn is just an adorable chubster. I want to skutch him in the worst way!

  24. garvels says:

    LOL at the comment regarding Rick Santorum’s head exploding:)

  25. Chickie Baby says:

    Boy, Zachary is one cute little booger. I’ll bet he’s a happy little guy who gets the best lullabies every night. (What a lucky little kid.)

  26. anti says:

    Damn they look happy! Hooray!

  27. Lindy says:

    Pretty dang cute, I must say. What a fun life that kiddo is gonna have–can you imagine? :)

    Also loling at the Rick Santorum comment–I have always been so annoyed by the gays-shoudln’t-be-parents meme. Isn’t there enough misery in the world? Not a day goes by without some horrifying story of child neglect, murder, beating, abuse… The more loving parents we have in the world, the better off kids will be. Who cares what the parents like to do with their sexy-parts, as long as they are willing and able to love and support their kids!

  28. horizonte says:

    awww, David has a tattoo on his forearm that says “Zachary”, you can see it in the first pic :-)

  29. lucy2 says:

    What a cutie!
    They all do seem very happy, that’s great!

  30. JaneWonderfalls says:

    I feel so sorry for this baby, He has and old queeny bitch for one of his dad’s! Other than that the baby is cute and Elton’s partner is one hunky daddy!!!

  31. Bamafresh says:

    Such a cute post!!! Thanks ’cause my day was crap.

  32. Bellabumbum says:

    Zachary is one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen. Zachary and Flynn (Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s son) are the next generation of handsome boys. Two cuties.

    Had a glum day…so happy to see a lovey little family.

  33. LemonySarah says:

    Adorable! Also, little Z needs a diaper change. Looks like this one’s about to burst.

  34. Luce says:

    Zachary looks like Elton because he’s his biological father

  35. Joe's Mom says:

    Saw EJ on some late night talk show not long ago, and he said they had to add the “Levon” in there when he was actually “born on Christmas Day”! EJ sounded so happy, and seemed like a very proud, sweet, doting Dad, not a grumpy grandpa at all. I don’t know who he looks like, but he is adorable!

  36. the original bellaluna says:

    So much adorable-ness! NPH, his fella, their twins, EJ, DF, and their little chubby cherub. What fun that vacation would be.

    And my toddler adores Gnomeo & Juliet, so “bravo” to Elton & David for that!

  37. Marianne says:

    My favourite babies are currently Gideon and Harper. (NPH’s kids). They are so chubby and cute.

  38. Call Me Al says:

    absolutely adorable baby and couple. zachary seems to be happy and feel safe in daddy david’s strong arms!

  39. aenflex says:

    F’ng right!! I love progress!

  40. Andie B says:

    VERY cute baby. He looks like a mini Elton. That little boy clearly has two parents who adore him. (And can afford to buy him real nice things).

  41. Vickyb says:

    A very cute baby! And a very cute, right-on, gay holiday! I’d love to be in St Tropez right now!

    I find Elton’s ring on his right pinky finger inexplicably hilarious!

  42. Bit of Nonsense from London says:

    What a lovely family!

  43. Listerino says:

    They look so happy it’s sweet. That mini-Elton of a baby is just adorable.

  44. gg says:

    I read that they mixed the sperm because they didn’t want to know who the genetic father was?

  45. luls says:

    Zachary is SO adorable :D

    Lol, i dont think iv ever seen so many gay daddies with their babies in 1 snapshot before!
