Elton John and David Furnish Confirm Lady Gaga Is Son's Godmother

Though it has been rumored for about two months now, Elton John and David Furnish confirmed to Barbara Walters on 20/20 that Lady Gaga is indeed the godmother of their son Zachary.

Said John about their reason for their choice: "When you get to the real person underneath, there's a simple girl who loves her parents. I love her to death and a lot of people say that's crazy, but they don't know her and we do."

The two also discuss the day birth of the baby, who now officially possesses the makings of a pop star. Watch the 20/20 segment (in two parts), AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. @Rowan: You covered a lot of ground in that incoherent post of yours.

    I don't honestly care about closeted celebrities. If they want to come out, fine, if not, whatever, it's their private life, they can choose to make the details known or unknown.

    I have no idea what you're talking about Elton John facing the "Christian Brigade" or whatever, that part just makes no sense.

    Look, if he wants to have a kid, fine. If he wants to show it off, whatever. Making a damn star-studded spectacle out of the whole thing is repulsive, and it would still be responsible if you swapped Elton and David with Ashton and Demi or Brad and Angelina or whoever. A child is not something you parade around the world, it's a person that will grow up in your image.

    Someone said that I didn't take gay child rearing seriously. The truth is that I take it VERY seriously, and it doesn't seem like these two do.
