Elton John and David Furnish - who are already parents to two-year-old son Zachary - have welcomed another son into their lives.
Born via a surrogate mother in Las Vegas, little Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born last Friday evening.
The pair revealed to Hello Magazine in the UK:
"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable.
"The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way.
"It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."
Elton - who wed his partner David Furnish in 2005 after 12 years together - expressed his desire for a brother or sister for their son Zachery last year, saying:
"We definitely will have another one.
"I don’t want him to be an only child."
Elijah was born on Friday night and weighed 8lbs 4oz.
The little boy was brought into the world via the same California-based surrogate who gave birth to Zachary on Christmas Day 2010, according to reports.
Last November, it was revealed Elton and David were expecting their second child but had decided never to reveal the identity of the surrogate.
A source said: "Elton and David love this lady like a sister and they feel indebted to her for life.
"Naturally she has been well rewarded. But her identity will never be revealed. They are over the moon."
Elton, 65, loves being a dad and has previously said he regretted waiting so long to have a child.
He said: "I think it changes everybody. It's the most wonderful thing that you could possibly go through.
"I regret a little bit that I didn't do it sooner, but he has changed our lives. Everything is about him now.
"He's gorgeous, he travels brilliantly, he so loves people, and it makes our lives - he's the icing on the cake.
"The first thing I do every morning is have breakfast with him. He shares my breakfast. Whatever I have, he wants."_
