Report: Elton John expecting second child

4045749484Part-time Atlantan Elton John and David Furnish have another baby on the way, The Daily reports.

As with son Zachary this child also will be born via a surrogate. It is the same surrogate, booked through the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, Calif., who delivered Zachary, the report says.

Here’s a photo of John and Furnish with Zachary during a trip to Atlanta last fall, when they stopped by the Georgia Aquarium. Maybe they will take the new baby to see the dolphins, too!

Having a surrogate does take some of the randomness and magic out of the occasion, but congratulations are still in order.

Is he really still a “part time Atlanta native”? I haven’t seen him around Buckhead in a long time.

Sorry, “Part time Atlantan.” He’s never been an “Atlanta native.” That’s what I get for trying to quote without scrolling up and looking…

That’s ok. He does still own a property here and spends some time here. Not that much, but enough to get a behind-the-scenes tour at the Georgia Aquarium!

Isn’t he a little long in the tooth to be starting all over again? I’m 52 and my youngest is starting college this fall; I can’t imagine having a newborn to take care of on a daily basis. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Congratulations all the same!

SCI, Do you really think he will be taking care of that baby? Please he and his pal will have 3 nannies, they can’t be bothered are you kidding me? You really can’t be that dense!?

& JB, buying a baby on the black or white market does NOT mean you’re expecting-It’s a ludicrous title to an article/buzz/crap whatever you call it. Must be a slowwwww news/entertainment day! And anyone with a little money can get a behind -the scenes-tour at the GA Aquarium…

Elton John is not expecting a baby. Try another headline. This is sad that the world has to come to this. I feel sorry for the two children having to live with immoral guardians.

God is shaking his head.

As crappy as the blog entry and subject matter are, Patrick Romano – you still found time to read it and comment TWICE on it. You better turn off your computer and get back in the living room – your judges shows are on!

We are all sinners. God knows the future of every baby and therefore they all deserve abundant love. We are all acceptable to God because of Jesus, not because of our own good choices or behavior. Read Luke 18:9-14. While Jesus was still on the cross and in His flesh, He proclaimed “it is finished”. He is referring to the performance game. God has no favorites and isn’t performance oriented ever since Jesus paid for all of us. I don’t personally know what Elton or David’s relationship with Jesus is like and I am not authorized to condemn them. Jesus hates sin but loves the sinner. Don’t loose hope for those little children, they may surprise you with who they grow up to call daddy/father/etc..

Evidently he’s still active enough to hire the full staff of the local brittish gay porn company to “cater” his annual birthday gala (pun intended) in London. By all accounts, he is quite active for his age… Certainly he’s active enough to authorize his accountants to write a check for the nannies and what not needed to care and tend to his offspring. Let’s just hope he shields the babes from all the galas during their formative years…

That Bozo holding the child is holding a baby with NO floatation device near a pool of water with a potentially dangerous dolphin in it. What a moron. What is it with gay men they have no maternat instinct.Just like Michael “Wacko’ Jackson holding his baby over the balcony.

You asshats with the “immoral” comments and the “non traditional family unit” comments amaze me. Is it really better a baby born to a drug addict mother and abussive father as long as they are a man and woman and are married? Come on! It is time to get with the times people. Men f%^ men and women F&^% women. It has happened FOREVER.

Even in the AJC, that headline looks weird and out of place. Just glad I don’t have to live in, associate with, or even see that type of environment. It’s a SAD, SAD state of affairs in the world today., but not unexpected. I remember being told when I was a teenager it would eventually come to this. AND we wonder why this county is in such a mess!

MOST of the comments are shameful. Just shameful. This is a happy family, adding to their family. We should be celebrating this event….I, for one, think this is wonderful…..I wish them every joy that a new child and a family of four can bring. The people who are hating are ignorant idiots……and they don’t even deserve the energy that it takes to respond to their stupidity. Big congrats Elton and David. I know that your family and children will be a treasured part of Atlanta!!!

“MorningsideMom” must be a great role model.

You may have downloaded a child, but you are no Mom.

Real mothers do such things as pass down true moral values, which is something that neither you nor Elton nor his, uh, honeypie will ever do.

Want to know why the world is going to hell MM? Just look in the mirror.

And you know nothing about shame either.

Dawg88, I couldn’t agree more.

But, we’ll all have to stand before God at some point.

If you choose to deny that, good luck, you’ll need it.

Change your ways. It’s not too late. Even for someone like Elton.

MorningsideMom, You are not a role model for motherhood. You haven’t a clue about real and true family values. A “Gay Lifestyle” isn’t normal or moral behavior. Homosexuals shouldn’t be allowed to adopt children. Nor should drug users or abusive people either. A true family has a Mother and a Father. Not a Father and Father or a Mother and Mother. Get it. Homosexuality is a SIN just like any other sin period. Your quick anger at RGB just proves you are unfit. Please think before you get angry. GOD Bless you anyway.

@ Kitster, really you’re going to call me out on a blog for sharing my opinion?.

Since you made a stupid, idiotic comment, I feel the need to address-You cannot fix stupid and that is what you are acting like! My Direct TV has been out since we arrived back from our Mtn cabin and I am currently studying PMP, Six Sigma MBB at Villanaova and was just simply killing time, but since you decided to share your comment, then there ya go!

What are you doing in your life, loser?

Well it’s kinda sad that the child may lose a parent at a young age considering Elton John’s age at the present time. And yes, I know he could live until 90,but still he will be 80 when this kid graduates high school. Have some common sense and think of others besides yourself Elton.

it is funny… listening to all those Anti-Gay comments.. when at the same time.. illicit sex between male and female is not only accepted but encouraged. Where is the morality in that? So many of you have bible quotes in your comments. Yet have you took the time to ask yourself how many of you have lied, how many of you have engaged in pre-marital sex, how many of you have stolen, how many of you hated your neighbor. As far something being unnatural.. Any thing created in nature is natural.. even if it goes against the grain.. all human behavior is natural to humans.. even in the animal kingdom homosexual activity has been observed. Soooooooooooooo many of you are complete liars and hippocrates… If God judges people by the acts of sin… then everyone is doomed to hell.. including all of you self righteous fools..

@ Neal, there’s no excuse for ANY sin. However…these days sinfulness is being “normalized” by the cultural marxists in the “mainstream” media, Hollyweird and Madiscum Avenue. What was vile and indecent 70-80 years ago still is.

I have nothing against gay folks, just hate seeing the left promote them as though they are the “norm”…………….I worry about these children as I know of no other mamal on earth that has only one sex, and no other mamal on earth that raises it’s children with two of the same sex……………….confused?……….I sure hope so, cause this just isn’t right.
