Elton John wants ‘old-fashioned childhood’ for his son

Elton John Show Off Zachary At Gnomeo Premiere: Photos

TO the premiere of Gnomeo and Julie (it is as it sounds – gnome meets lover; gnome losers lover; gnome impales himself on fishing rod barb). The film is produced by news dads Elton John and David Furnish, they of the censored sperm shake. This might well be the future for Elton.
New celebrity mums and dads are fond of turning their soft hands to the creative arts and bringing us ranges of clothing and books so that we plebs can dress our sprogs like better looking and more talented babies. We can read our kidzzz the same stories, perhaps while impersonating the famous writer and thus increase the chance, however miniscule, that our child will not grow up to resent our inability to get them record deal and a modelling contract with Chanel.
Liz Hurley was also there, naturally. She was with her son Daimen. Will he grow up to be the anti-celeb? Let’s see…
PS – look ut for Alex James’s teeth which seem to be made of his beloved cheese, and Boy George doing a Benny Hill.

Elton John wants ‘old-fashioned childhood’ for his son

Bang Showbiz
'Rocket Man' singer Elton John and his husband David Furnish became parents to baby Zachary Jackson Levon through a surrogate mother on Christmas Day but despite their wealth, John is determined the tot will remain grounded.
John says: "I so value my own childhood now, and the sense of wonder and personal discovery that I enjoyed, that we want to give Zachary, as much as we possibly can, the same thing. A solid old-fashioned childhood, if you like.”
"I know it'll be hard with my life, but we want him to have that same normality and for things in life to have real value. So we don't intend to spoil him, we're going to try to give him a fun, carefree time of innocence, freedom, love and stability."
Although he has a huge personal fortune, John, 63, says he fears for today's children because they live in such a materialistic world and don't appreciate things.
He told Saga magazine: "I don't know if kids get that sort of enjoyment out of things anymore. I don't think you can do because your parents worked so hard when money was scarce to buy you a bicycle or your first record player.
"I don't want to become Britain's crustiest old man but I don't think you can possibly have the pleasure now of growing up like we did. A trip to the cinema was a treat, a trip up to London was unbelievably exciting. A trip anywhere."

Unforgettable People (VI): Renate Blauel

Elton in 1983 met a girl named Renate in AIR’s London Studios, she was working as tape operator. People around Elton had little notice about she at the beginning, as Philip Norman described in his book, until the “Breaking hearts” sessions when Elton suddenly said “I’m not going unless Renate goes out there too”. In the next tour for Australia and New Zeland the same mystifying ultimate was done: "None without Renate". And finally, Elton declared to bassist Dee Murray: “Guess what man, I am engaged!”. As Norman explained, german Renate emigrated to London at 22, as an act of rebellion against her parents, and in a male-dominating world of recording studios, she had done remarkably well.

The media commented “Elton John who has admitted to being bisexual, is to marry next week”. Their family and closest associates had already heard Elton’s big new on the phone from Sidney. Far from the general astonishment, Bernie, one of the best men along with John Reid, said “I always knew that if Elton suddenly got a bee in his bonnet about wanting a family, it was likely to happen pretty suddenly”. Elton’s mother, Sheila, appeared enthusiastic but Ivy, Elton’s grandmother was thrilled: “I had to take a tablet to calm myself down”. For Renate, Elton was “wonderful, he makes me laugh and he’s very considerate, I am feeling just fabulous”.

The marriage was on 14 February, St. Valentine’s Day, in an Anglican church in the Sydney suburb of Darling Point, and it was a traditional white wedding. A hundred of wedding guests were specially flown from Britain and America.

The end of the love story was officially on 18 November, 1988, by a “divorce of mutual consent and with no fault attaching to either party”. “Elton’s marriage flickered and went out like a candle in the wind” was Today’s headline.

Since their divorce, with Elton admitting that he was gay, Renate and Elton had little contact. Renate, who received a large sum of money, has kept details of their relationship private and she lives now in a small cottage from a village from Surrey, UK.

One article, headlined "Sad, lonely life of the woman who loved and lost Elton John" and published in June 2000 By GERARD COUZENS on Sunday Mirror, compared “Ms Blauel's current lifestyle with her experiences with her former husband”, and was accompanied by photographs of Renate in a gas petrol station forecourt. The article started with “EX-WIFE RENATE STILL SHUNS SPOTLIGHT AFTER 14 YEARS IN HER RURAL (…) No-one would guess the auburn-haired woman out on a rare shopping trip was once married to Britain's most outrageous rock star”. The article said that “Neighbours in the village know little about her”. Maxine, one local who has got to know her, explained: "She's a lovely lady but a very private person who just wants to be left alone to get on with her life." Another added: "We don't mention Elton's name because we know it still upsets her. The warmth she's found in the village has helped her get back on her feet".

The parting has been described amicable, thought Elton has ackowledged that he deeply hurt Renate. For the articulist, "there's no doubt her failed marriage to Elton is behind the rather reclusive life she leads now. She sincerely believed their marriage was for life."
