David and Elton, who have been together since 1993, share two children together, Zachary and Elijah. They welcomed their first son Zachary via surrogate in December 2010, followed by younger brother Elijah, who was born in 2013 via the same surrogate.

The couple are devoted parents, with the musician previously crediting his sons for changing "everything about my life".

"I've learned that the simplest things in life, like having a minute with them, are worth more than any painting, any photograph, any house or hit record," he told The Mirror.

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. 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."
