Sir Elton John To Keep Baby's Biological Dad Secret

Sir Elton John and David Furnish have made a pact to never reveal who the biological father of their child is - so baby Zachary will grow up to see his two dads as equals.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish will never reveal their baby's biological father.
The couple, whose son Zachary was born to a surrogate mother on Christmas Day (25.12.10), have made a pact to keep the process of the tot's conception a secret - so he grows up seeing his two dads as equals.
A friend of David's told The Sun newspaper: "He and Elton made a pact that they are equal parents - no one will ever know who the biological father is.
"They will deal with whether Zach is told, if and when the time arises in the years ahead."
However, the 63-year-old singer has admitted that he wanted the child to be his - but the couple may have chosen David, 48, as the donor because he is younger.
A friend said: "Elton was clear he wanted his bloodline to continue but also took on board advice that a younger man may be a more appropriate donor. It is a very complicated arrangement - but one forged by love."
According to reports, Elton is listed on Zachary's birth certificate as his father, while David is mentioned as mother.
Meanwhile, Elton and David are using their new fatherhood status to renew their bid to help two HIV-positive brothers, Lev and Artyom, they tried to adopt in the Ukraine.
David said: "Although Ukranian law does not permit Elton and I to adopt Lev and Artyom, we are determined to give them the best chance of living a happy and healthy life with a loving Ukranian family.
"The arrival of our son has done nothing but strengthen our resolve to help these two wonderful children.
"We are, however, constrained by Ukranian policy and legal procedure, and this is why for the past 12 months we have retained a leading Ukranian law firm to assist us in this process."

According to reports, official documents reveal that the 63-year-old provided sperm for the surrogacy.

He is apparently listed on Zachary's birth certificate as the father, while David is mentioned as the mother.

It is the celebrity couple's first baby, following an unsuccessful adoption of an orphan in Ukraine last year.

Sir Elton and David Furnish entered a civil partnership back in 2005 after 12 years together.

N.Y. Post Continues Tradition of Homophobia With ‘Elton and Wife’ Headline

Announcing the adoption of Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John to new dads Elton John (pictured, right) and partner David Furnish (left), the New York Post continued a tradition of antigay language and cartoons, running a story Wednesday with the headline “Elton and wife proud dads.”
The story by David K. Li, which ran in the print edition and online, was free of antigay slurs or language, but the headline, inaccurate, sophomoric, antigay, and anti-female, has elicited responses from blogs and editorial writers.
Gawker’s Brian Moylan points out that apart from the insult to both gay men and women, the joke is journalistically inaccurate, as the men are civil partners in the United Kingdom, though not technically married.
GLAAD reached out to the New York Post’s managing editor, but the newspaper has not changed its headline. In previous years GLAAD has taken to task the newspaper for calling transgender women “she-males” and for its insulting cartoon depictions of gay men. The watchdog group was created 25 years ago in response to the Post’s antigay AIDS coverage.
