They were overjoyed to welcome their son Zachary into the world on Christmas Day in 2010. And now Sir Elton John, 65, and David Furnish are set to become parents for the second time, according to reports in The Sun. The paper reports the showbiz couple are expecting their newest addition to the family next year via a surrogate, thought to be the same one that gave birth to their 23-month old son. Speaking to the Radio Times in August he said: 'We definitely will have another one. At what stage we don't know, but we definitely will. I don't want him to be an only child.’ In the interview Elton acknowledged that Zachary would have a difficult time growing up not just because of his father's fame but also because of their unconventional family set up. He noted: 'Being the child of someone famous is a huge ball and chain around your ankles. It's going to be very difficult.’ ‘At school other children will say, “You don't have a mummy”. We've come a long way, but there's still homophobia and will be until a new generation of parents don't instill it in their children.’ To conceive their first son sperm from both men was mixed to fertilise the chosen egg – a process banned in the UK – and the child was carried by a surrogate

'Naturally she has been well rewarded. But her identity will never be revealed.' A spokesperson for Elton was not available for comment on Saturday morning.
