Elton John Takes The Family For A Venetian Cruise
Elton John Takes The Family For A Venetian
Elton John, his hubby David Furnish and their Elton clone baby son Zachary Jackson Levon have made their way to Venice, Italy for a bit of a family vacay and were spotted having a grand ol’ time together on a yacht this week. As you can see from the photos below, little Zach is getting bigger and bigger by the day … and he is looking more and more like his daddy Elton John. Check out the happy fam below.
They have refused to reveal who his father is – but the chubby cheeks could have given the game away. With their round faces, Elton John and his son Zachary looked uncannily similar during a trip to Venice yesterday. And the five-month-old’s big blue eyes put onlookers in mind of Sir Elton’s 1982 hit Blue Eyes. Zachary’s other father, filmmaker David Furnish, joined the pair on their visit to the Venice Biennale, a contemporary art exhibition. The proud parents cuddled and cooed over their new addition as they travelled across the city. The little boy, who was born to a surrogate mother on Christmas Day last year, will grow up to call Sir Elton ‘Daddy’ and Furnish ‘Papa’. But the couple do not yet know who the child’s biological father is. Furnish said: ‘Neither of us care. He’s our child. The important thing is that he’s healthy and happy and loved … Elton has previously pledged to make Zachary a grounded child despite his parents’ fame and riches. The Rocket Man singer said: ‘I so value my own childhood now, and we want to give Zachary – as much as we possibly can – the same thing. A solid old-fashioned childhood, if you like.’
Oh yeah, it doesn’t get more “old fashioned” than a yacht cruise in the canals of Venice. Let’s be real here, Elton John is extravagantly wealthy … it is utterly ridiculous to believe that he plans to do anything but shower his only child with wealth beyond imagining … and it’s OK. I don’t get why celebs tend to taut how “normal” they plan to raise their children when we know the opposite will be true. As long as this beautiful little boy is loved and adored by his parents, who cares how wealthily they will live? This family looks so happy … that is all that matters.
Are You Ready for the Rocket Man?
POP royalty Sir Elton John will perform before a sell-out audience in Scarborough tonight.
Final preparations are being put in place for the show, at the town’s newly-expanded Open Air Theatre.
The event is expected to provide a shot in the arm for the economy of the seaside resort, with more than 8,000 people set to attend.
Hotels, restaurants and bars are hoping to feel the benefit of the extra footfall.
Councillor David Jeffels, Scarborough Borough Council’s member for tourism, said: “People will travel and stay overnight for the likes of Sir Elton.
“Many will have a weekend break before taking in the show.”
Tonight’s performance is one of just two shows the Crocodile Rock singer is performing in the UK as part of his European tour.
The star’s last high-profile performance in the region was at The Northern Echo Arena, in Darlington, in the summer of 2008.
In 2009, he was forced to cancel a performance in Newcastle because of flu.
Fans at tonight’s show can expect more than two hours of hits from his back catalogue, which includes classics such as Your Song and Are You Ready For Love?
