Elton John says son faces difficult childhood
Child will have to face homophobia and impact of fame
SIR Elton John has told how he believes his son Zachary’s childhood is going to be “very difficult” as he battles homophobia and the impact of his father’s world fame.
The 65-year-old star and his civil partner David Furnish, 49, became parents on Christmas Day 2010 to a child conceived using a donor egg and born via a surrogate.
The singer said he was preparing himself for what would be a rough time growing up for his son.
He said: “Being the child of someone famous is a huge ball and chain around your ankles. It’s going to be very difficult.”
