ELTON JOHN BABY
Elton John Baby Boy by Surrogate Mother
By Delwyn Lounsbury
Singer Elton John, 62, and partner David Furnish, 48 announced the birth of their son Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John. The Elton John baby boy was born Christmas, December 25 2010. by surrogate mother in California. "And they shall be Levon" was a line in one of Elton's songs. The baby was a very healthy 7 pounds and 15 ounces. Reportedly, they got tips on surrogacy from Sara Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick who had twins in June of 2009 using her eggs and Mathew's sperm.
California is one of the few states that has no laws against or banning surrogacy. Reports are that the couple chose California because of the more flexible laws especially with regards to gay and lesbian parents seeking surrogates.
The surrogate birth fulfills their dream to become parents. The child is the first for the couple. However, in 2009 they traveled to an orphanage in the Ukraine to try and adopt 2 young brothers. Their application to adopt was declined by the Ukrainian authorities. "David always wanted to adopt a child and I always said 'no' because I am 62 and I think because of all the traveling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn't be fair for the child," Elton John told reporters then.
"For many years we have talked about fulfilling one of our greatest wishes by becoming parents. And now this wish has been granted to us, we feel so blessed and lucky. We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment," Said Elton John.
The legendary songwriter, performer and now new father spoke to the media about his excitement. "Zachary is healthy and doing well." The surrogate mother's name was not released. Although this is John and Furnish's first child, the five-time Grammy winner and partner have 6 godchildren, including John Lennon's son, Sean; Elizabeth Hurley's son, Damien; and David and Victoria Beckham's two sons, Brooklyn and Romeo. With so many unknowns in going overseas for surrogacy, this is further evidence that surrogate parenting can more done more safely right here in California.
The Elton John baby boy surrogacy news comes after celebrities Neil Patrick Harris and boyfriend David Burka disclosed back in October 2010 that they had twins by surrogate mom and egg donor. The girl named Harper Grace and the boy named Gideon Scott were born October 12, 2010 and now live with their famous fathers in their Hollywood Hills home which has a new nursery designed with an old-school Disneyland theme park decor.
Amazingly, the implantation of a donor egg and both father’s sperm resulted in each genetically fathering a child. It is not known which one is which and may never be known.
On Twitter on Christmas Day Neil Patrick Harris wrote, "Great - Congratulations to David Furnish and Elton John on the birth of their son, Zachary! Can't wait for play dates in the south of France."
Those interested in surrogacy should be aware that a 1993 California gestational surrogacy court case (Johnson v. Calvert) awarded the intended parents all rights to a surrogate born child. Since then, there has been good court acceptance of surrogacy. The birth certificate will have the intended parent’s names.
In 2005 the California Supreme Court decided three cases together that had to do with lesbian couples who had reproduced using surrogacy. The court ruled under the Uniform Parentage Act, two women can be the legal parents of a child produced through surrogacy.
This ruling presumably applies to the rest of the LGBT community. Since these court rulings are now case law, this makes California the land of opportunity for infertile people around the world plus gay surrogacy, lesbian surrogacy and same sex parenting.
We welcome Elton John baby boy, Zachary.

Elton John Baby Magazine Cover Censored
ELTON JOHN BABY
Shield Removed-Elton John Baby Magazine Cover Censored.
by Delwyn Lounsbury
The censorship was quickly reversed by the store when the tweets started tweeting all over twitter.
UPDATE: The Arkansas supermarket has reversed it's decision Wednesday to hide a magazine cover showing Elton John and his same-sex partner David Furnish holding their new baby.
Harps Food Stores President Kim Eskew released this statement: "When we began receiving complaints at our corporate office, we reviewed the magazine in question, removed the shield and are selling the magazine in all our locations today without any cover," Eskew said Wednesday. "Our true intention is not to offend anyone in our stores and this incident happened at just one of our 65 locations, which, when brought to our attention, we reversed."
Remarkably, an Elton John baby magazine cover was censored by placing a plastic "Family Shield" over the magazine rack at one supermarket in Arkansas. It was removed, but the incident got major media attention and buzz on the internet.
The US Weekly cover features a picture of Elton John, civil partner David Furnish and their new baby born by surrogate mother Zachary. One Harps supermarket chain store (65 stores in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma) censored it by placing a "Family Shield To protect young Harps shoppers" plastic cover in front of the magazine rack.
After first answering with "no comment" the shield has been apparently removed.
A twitter message went out to celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper and Neil Patrick Harris, asking them to bring attention to the matter.
PopEater's - Naughty But Nice - Rob Shuter reported that the cover sold poorly and he wondered if America was ready for "two men and a baby." He said, "We can let out families watch 'Jersey Shore' but not see a picture of Elton, his partner and their beautiful baby boy."
Apparently, every Harps store is equipped with plastic shields they put up on a store-by-store basis whenever customers complain about the content of a magazine cover.
Sir Elton John and David Furnish's son was born by surrogate mother on Christmas Day, 12/25/2010. Zachary is the first child for Sir Elton John, 62 and Furnish, 48. They have been married since 2005 and have lived together for 12 years.
Back in October actor Neil Patrick Harris and boyfriend David Burtka had twins (a boy and a girl) by surrogate mother. Remarkably, the procedure saw each of their sperm father a child probably using in vitro fertilization then implanting the eggs in the mothers womb. You can read an article I wrote about that miraculous event if you google "Neil Patrick Harris & How I Met Your Surrogate Mother" or go to my web site.
We are a California commercial surrogacy agency.
Let's not stand in the way of our citizen's right to happiness. No mater what their sexual orientation.
I also want to mention the absolute stone age treatment of Islamic women in many regions of the world. Women are still being treated as second class citizens in the Muslim faith. They are not allowed to have their own life, vote and other freedoms of their male counterparts. They are treated as slaves and not allowed to drive a car, vote, go out with their friends and are still being stoned to death for adultery. Recently, a young couple was stoned to death for merely eloping. My belief is breaking this barrier would go a long way toward easing tensions and reversing Islamic extremes troubling modern day society. Women want a better world for their children. Help them in that cause. Lobby for their emancipation! The strict Islamic sharia' law hurts both men's and women's freedom and liberty. Sharia' is cruel and oppressive. It's TYRANNY!
