How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris is congratulating Elton on his new role as father.
”Great congratulations to David Furnish & Elton John on the birth of their son, Zachary! Can’t wait for play dates in the south of France…,” Neil tweeted Tuesday.
Elton and his partner welcomed their baby boy on Christmas Day, while Neil and David Burtka‘s twins, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace, arrived in October.
Boy George admitted being surprised, but said it doesn’t matter if the couple is gay or straight, ”as long as they are great, loving parents.”
The news also came as a bit of a shock to journalist Piers Morgan who had recently interviewed the vocalist as part of his Life Stories show.
He joked: ”Feel such a fool – Sir Elton never even hinted he was pregnant during our interview.”
Meanwhile, many are wondering why the BBC invited Stephen Green, from an organisation known as Christian Voice, to comment. Green has previously said that gay people deserve the death penalty, that gay celebrities are wicked and should be publicly hung, and that LGBT people are akin to mass murderers. So it was hardly a surprise when Stephen said it’s abhorrent for two gay men to raise a child.
”This isn’t just a designer baby for Sir Elton John, this is a designer accessory. Now it seems like money can buy him anything, and so he has entered into their peculiar arrangement. . . . The baby is a product of it. A baby needs a mother and it seems an act of pure selfishness to deprive a baby of a mother.”
