In the new issue of Us Weekly (out Wednesday), Sir Elton John and David Furnish share first-ever photos of their beautiful baby son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, who was born on Christmas Day.
In an exclusive interview, just 10 days after Zachary’s birth, the couple invited Us Weekly inside their Los Angeles home to share their remarkable journey.
John, 63, and Furnish, 48, speak candidly about the birth of their first child.
“I’ve never felt anything like it in my life,” the music legend tells Us of holding their son for the first time. “You’re so awestruck. What can you say? You take it in. The feeling, the joy, the warmth of his body, his breathing…I will never forget that experience ever.”
Adds film producer Furnish: “He’s a content little guy…He just loves to be nurtured, cuddled, and sung to.”
The couple of 17 years also discuss how they will never give up on Ukrainian orphan Lev, 2, and his HIV-positive brother Artyom, four.
John and Furnish are donating all proceeds from the licensing of these photos to their chosen charities.
