Hold the presses!!! Despite reports to the contrary, Elton John and David Furnish have not welcomed their second child!
The iconic singer and his husband have denied reports that they have welcomed their second child via a surrogate. The faux baby news originally appeared Page Six of the New York Post which reported that the couple had turned to the same California-based surrogate who helped them achieve the dream of fatherhood in 2010 when she gave birth to their son Zachary for help in expanding their family.
It didn't take long for the Rocket Man's reps to issue a statement rebuking the news saying, "Reports that Elton and David have had a second child are false."
If the couple do decide to add to their family anytime soon it should come as no surprise to fans of the couple. The singer has gushed in the past about his joy in becoming a dad. He told USA Today earlier this year, "I'm the luckiest guy in the world. It's been a joyride.... I have a child, which I thought I'd never have. And my life is a constant delight."
Even though the news that Elton had a new addition appear to be false, there are plenty of other stars who have started the new year with newborns. Here are some of the stars who have heard the pitter patter of brand new baby feet recently:
Jon Jones: The bass player for the Eli Young Band skipped the ball dropping and instead celebrated the arrival of his new baby, Hudson Lennon Jones, on New Year's Eve. The baby weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces. Of the new addition he told People magazine, "We are ecstatic about this beautiful baby boy that came into our world. Words cannot describe our excitement and joy."
Ryan Murphy: The "Glee" creator rang in the new year with a one-week-old baby. He announced the news of his big arrival on Twitter writing, Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes. Logan is one week old and doing great. Happy new year!" The baby made his grand entrance on Christmas Eve via a surrogate. He weighed in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
Matthew McConaughey: The sexiest dad alive ended the year with a brand new baby when his wife Camila welcomed their third child on December 28. He announced the news on Twitter writing, "Camila gave birth to our third child yesterday morning. Our son, Livingston Alves McConaughey was born at 7:43 a.m. on 12.28.12. He greeted the world at 9 lbs and 21 inches. Bless up and thank you for all your well wishes."
