(LOS ANGELES) -- Elton John and his longtime partner, David Furnish, received an amazing present this Christmas -- a new baby son.
A surrogate gave birth to Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John in California on Dec. 25, according to UsMagazine.com. The baby boy weighed in at seven pounds, 15 ounces, and is the first child for the couple, who married in 2005 after being together for 12 years.
In a statement to Us, John and Furnish said, "We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment. Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents."
A rep says the couple intends to protect and respect the privacy of the surrogate, and they will not be discussing any details related to the surrogacy.
