The little boy is clearly a big fan of The Simpsons; his cake is in the form of Bart Simpson and even features the donuts that dad Homer is so obsessed with. Elijah's name has been included in red icing, along with his age, while nine candles sit on top of Bart's head.

In a separate interview with the Guardian, Sir Elton spoke further about the couple's approach to parenting their boys. "I'm their dad, I'm famous, they live an extraordinary life," he confessed. "David and I talk about it all the time, we're fully aware of the pitfalls that might happen.

The couple have been together since 1993

"They are spoilt in the way they live and how they're living, but they're not spoilt when it comes to the rules they have to live by. They get £3 pocket money, but £1 is for charity, £1 is for saving and £1 is for spending, they get three coins and put them in separate jars.

"And they have to work for it – help in the kitchen, help in the garden. They've got to learn the value of doing something and earning something for themselves."
