Sir Elton Broody For Second Child
Sir Elton John has revealed he would like to have another child so that his son Zachary has someone to play with.
In a candid interview the 65-year-old, who once said he was too selfish to have children, talked about parenthood and how having two fathers may affect his son.
Sir Elton and his civil partner David Furnish welcomed Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, who was born via a surrogate in America, on Christmas Day 2010.
Sir Elton said: "I'd love to have more children. I want to have a brother or a sister to go to school with him so that he can have someone to play with."
The singer also spoke about the challenges Zachary may face. "It's going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn't got a mummy. But he's so happy. I've never seen a more contented child. And you have never seen two more contented people as David and I."
The interview marks the release of Sir Elton's memoirs Love Is The Cure: On Life, Loss and the End of Aids.
Speaking to NBC's Today show, Sir Elton also revealed that he wished he had done more at the start of the Aids epidemic - and said he once feared his drug addiction would kill him.
"I wasted such a big part of my life... I was a drug addict and self-absorbed. You know, I was having people die right, left, and centre around me, friends. And yet, I didn't stop the life that I had. I was consumed by cocaine, booze and who knows what else."
He added: "When you take a drug and you take a drink and you mix those two together, you think you're invincible. I came out of this HIV-negative. I was the luckiest man in the world."
what do you think?
Any report concernig those 2 is definately cringe worthy
He is still self-absorbed, otherwise he would realise that a child needs a mother and a father, not two fathers! Sick!!!!
