According to reports Elton John and David Furnish have become fathers for a second time.

The New York Post reports that the pair, who are already parents to two-year-old Zachary, have welcomed a second baby via surrogate with the newspaper claiming the same California-based surrogate was used.

There are no official details about the baby.

It was revealed in November that the couple were expecting a second child. They decided not to reveal the identity of the surrogate.

65-year-old Elton has said of being a father to Zachary "I think it changes everybody. It's the most wonderful thing that you could possibly go through. I regret a little bit that I didn't do it sooner, but he has changed our lives. Everything is about him now.

"He's gorgeous, he travels brilliantly, he so loves people, and it makes our lives - he's the icing on the cake."
