Elton John just seems like the cutest dad. He and his partner David Furnish welcomed little Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John a little over a month ago, and it seems they’re already pros at fatherhood.
“It’s four weeks today and it’s been an enchanting and incredible experience more so than I could ever imagine,” John told Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY at the Gnomeo & Juliet junket. “I knew it was going to be wonderful.”
Elton added that he’s never quite felt anything like this in his life. “l I don’t think anything prepares you for the joy that a young baby can give you,” he gushed.
As for how he and David are dealing with diaper duty, he said,
“He has been such a good child--he cries when he’s hungry, he cries when he wants to be changed, he cries when he has wind and we know what to do with him, we know what to do when they cry. He’s a little blank canvas and he is just adorable.”
Now that’s love! And how cute is it that he calls Zach’s gas “wind??”
But just because Elton and David are happy with one, it doesn’t mean they’re going to pull a Brangelina and have a whole army of chillens. “I haven’t thought about having more, he told us. “We just had this one.”
He admitted, “It’s made me very relaxed, it’s definitely brought David and I close together. We were pretty close together anyway--we have been together 17 year--it’s definitely brought us closer together.”
All in all, we’ve never heard Elton this happy—and he’s got it pretty damn good. “It seems to be that everything in my life is so wonderful,” he said. “I have a wonderful partner, an incredible career, fantastic friends, I have my health and I have a child. I’m the most blessed person in the world I think, I pinch myself sometimes and think, ‘God,’ you know?”
He’s one guy who’s definitely earned his happiness, and deserves it! Check out our EXCLUSIVE interview with Elton John below!
