Elton John is sixty eight and living life to the fullest. He appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show and opened up about the loves of his life, his husband (David Furnish) and two children.
Not too long ago the couple celebrated their one-year anniversary. They had been together much longer than that, but it was their official anniversary of being legally married.
They have two beautiful boys together, Zachary who is five years old and Elijah who is three years old.
Looking at where he is now, Elton is pleasantly surprised. He told Ellen:
“If you’d had said to me 10 years ago I’d be sitting on your show married to the man I love and have two beautiful children I would have said, ‘You put acid in my drink.’ But life throws you challenges and life throws you curveballs — great curveballs — and these two children have come along at a time I never thought I’d have children. They are the greatest thing in our lives. There’s no words to describe how much we love these boys. They’re just amazing.”
Aside from the fun of everyday life, Elton is able to enjoy travelling in a new light. He said:
“It was the first time they’d been [to Disneyland] and they went on a lot of things including the tea cups which I hate! You see my pictures — I’m sitting there like that. And Zachary just laughing his head off. But we had a wonderful time there.”
He’s also trying to instill good musical taste into his house. But despite his children listening to his own work, they have their own favourite tunes. He told Ellen:
“I mean they love ‘Hotline Bling’. That’s their favorite song. And they love ‘Uptown Funk’ and Zachary likes ‘Kraftwerk’ which is a bit worrying.”
