It’s not even a month Elton John welcomed his first son Zachary and the concerns started arising if the multi-award winner singer and his civil partner would be able to look after their son in the same way only a mother could do. Zachary was born to John to a surrogate mother on Christmas Day last year and the very first person who raised voice on the welfare of the baby is Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Bishop of Rochester. Michael is of the view that Elton John’s fathering by a surrogate mother could damage the psychology of the boy as it’s very important for a kid to have both mother and father around him to build healthy relationship with both genders. The former server of the Church was also concerned about the age of John who will turn 64 in March.
Through there has been much criticism coming in Elton’s way for having kid through a third party but it seems the legendary pop star took all possible measures that could help his new baby boy to grow up without any disruption long before he born. If sources are to be believed Elton doubled the number of staff working for him. He hired more chauffeurs, office assistants and housekeepers and nannies to assist him with the baby. According to recent news Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish has also chosen two of their long term friends as the godparents of Zachary. The Scottish-educated magazine editor Ingrid Sischy and her lesbian partner Sandy Brant would be the godmothers for Zachary. Ingrid and Sandy share a great deal of mutual interest with Elton and they were the only two whom with couple shared their surrogate pregnancy details. Elton and David did not decide yet that how many godparents Zachary would have but they plan to choose a member of David’s family or someone else with high profile.
