Stars With Famous Godparents

Lady Gaga has a new, and very important, role—playing Godmother
to Elton John and husband David Furnish’s new son Zachary Jackson Levon
Furnish-John. Whoa, that’s a long name!

Elton confirmed that great news to Barbara Walters in an
upcoming interview on Good Morning America. “Yes, yes she is.” Babs already
knew the news and kept it a secret. But than again, we all already knew.

Gaga seems a little out there. So why would he trust her of
all people with his only son?

"When you get to the real person under there, there's a
real simple person under there who loves her parents."

Added Furnish: "Zachary's going to inherit an
incredible musical legacy from his father one day, and she will be a good
person to guide him through the ins and outs of the music business, 'cause she
sure knows everything about the business now."

What a lucky kid! He has Elton John as his Dad and Gaga as
his Godmother. He’s pretty much set for life. Holidays and birthdays are going
to kick ass for Zachary.

Other celebrities with famous Godparents include Nicole
Richie
, who had bragging rights that Michael Jackson was her Godfather.

When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt gave birth to twins
Vivienne and Knox, they asked Bono to be the godfather. What a rockin’ role!

Gwyneth Paltrow has a super famous director to call her
Godfather—Steven Spielberg. He’s also Drew Barrymore’s!

Not surprisingly, Jennifer Aniston was asked to be BFF Courteney
Cox
and David Arquette’s daughters Godmother.

Hottie Johnny Depp is a godfather as well—to Tim Burton and
Helena Bonham Carter’s baby. Is it creepy to have a crush on your Godfather?
