Elton John and his partner David Furnish told US Weekly in a joint statement “We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment.  Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents.”  They will be protecting their surrogates right to privacy and will not be giving out any information regarding their arrangement with her.
