Elton and David introduce baby Zachary to the French Riviera

Most babies have their first play date at a park or a friend's house.

But then seven-month-old Zachary is different to most little ones.

When you have Elton John and David Furnish as parents, that's to be expected.



The showbiz couple were introducing their little lad to St Tropez this week.

And they were joined by How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burthka and their baby twins.

The group made a big fuss of nine-month-olds Gideon Scott and Harper Grace and Zachary, who were all born to surrogate mothers.

The trio looked cute as buttons as they were put in tiny lifejackets for the trip out to Elton's yacht.

They had spent some time on beach bar Club 55, where Kate Moss was spotted a few days earlier.


Rocketman singer Elton and David have said they want to give Zachary "a solid, old-fashioned childhood".

Indeed, Neil Patrick – who first met up with the family in February with his twins–  has commented on what hands-on-dads they are.

"They're super great parents. They’re so fiercely involved in their son's life and it's really kind of great to watch them interact with him," he said.

One thing that certainly isn't "old-fashioned" is Elton and David's choice of godmother.

The pair have asked Lady Gaga to take on the role, and there are reports she will sing at the christening.

Explaining the choice, Elton said: "When you get to the real person under there, there's a real simple person under there who loves her parents."
