Elton John and David Furnish have welcomed their second child, the couple confirmed on Tuesday night.

Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born via surrogate in Los Angeles at 6:40 p.m. on Friday, weighing 8 pounds and 4 ounces.

The newborn joins older brother Zachary, who turned 2 on Christmas Day.

The couple says in a statement to Hello!, “Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. ”

“It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement,” the parents add.

Last Thursday, amidst widespread reports claiming the couple’s new baby had already arrived, Gossip Cop exclusively reported that the surrogate had not yet given birth.
