Elton John, 65, and David Furnish, 50, have welcomed their second child — another boy!

And the name is...

Elijah Joseph Daniel Funish-John.

Beautiful biblical name!

Baby Elijah was born via surrogate last Friday, January 11, 6:40 p.m., in Los Angeles, weighing in at eight pounds, four ounces.

The couple confirmed the big news to Hello! Magazine, along with this statement:


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.

Aww..., I think I'm going to cry — so happy for them.

Baby Elijah joins big brother Zachary Jackson Levon, 2.

Congrats to the family!

Love! xo Haley-O
