Elton John Confirms that Lady Gaga Is New Baby's Godmother

Kevin Kane/WireImageElton John made headlines when he selected Lady Gaga as godmother to his and partner David Furnish's first child, Zachary.  Now, Elton confirms that the young pop superstar also will fill that role for the couple's new baby, Elijah.

Speaking to the TV show Extra, John says Lady Gaga is "a great role model," adding, "She's been a great godmother to Zachary.  She came to bathe him in Las Vegas.  She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn…and she fed him." 

He added, referring to Lady Gaga's legendary eccentricity, "We're all bonkers in this business, but we're human beings at the same time."

According to Elton, Zachary, who's two years old, "loves his younger brother."  But while Zachary's "all boy," notes John, Elijah is "very Zen."

Elton also discussed being a father in general, saying he surprised himself with his tolerance for typical children's behavior.  "Everything I thought I would find annoying about having children, like screaming and shouting, and tantrums…I don't find any of it annoying, I find it all enchanting," he reveals.

So, will John and Furnish be having any other children?  Elton told Extra, "If we wanted three we would love to have a girl, [but] two is enough."
