The stars turning to surrogacy to experience joy of parenthood

Having failed in an adoption bid to become parents to a Ukrainian orphan in 2009, Elton John and his partner David Furnish were overjoyed to become fathers to son Zachary in 2010, via a Californian surrogate mother.

In a joint statement the couple said: "We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment.

"Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents."
