Don't go sending your baby gifts just yet.  Elton John's rep has denied a report in the New York Post that the legendary rocker and his partner, David Furnish, have welcomed a second child via surrogate.

The paper claimed that the couple used the same surrogate who gave birth to their son Zachary on Christmas Day in 2010.  However, Elton's rep tells ABC News Radio, "Reports that Elton and David have had a second child are false."

In November, there had been reports that Elton and David were going to expand their family, but neither man ever confirmed the rumors.  Elton was quoted as saying last year, "At what stage we don’t know. But we definitely will. I don’t want [Zachary] to be an only child.” 

The Rocket Man further explained that he felt it was important for Zachary to have a sibling, because growing up with two dads might be difficult.  Speaking to NBC's Today show last year, Elton said, "When he's four and he starts going to preschool kids will say, 'You don't have a mummy.'... And I want him to have a brother or a sister to go to school with him.  And so that he can have someone to play with."
