Elton John lets his sons go after their own goals.
The 75-year-old Grammy winner told E! News if his and David Furnish’s sons Zachary Jackson, 11, and Elijah Joseph, 912 years old, are musically inclined.
The family was in New York City on Wednesday to see Saks Fifth Avenue’s holiday windows.
John said, “They’re still so young, so I’m not sure.” “But, no matter what their hopes and dreams are, my husband David and I will always be there for them.”
After having Zachary and Elijah through a surrogate, he and Furnish, who was 60 at the time, got married on the ninth anniversary of their civil partnership, which was in 2014.
John had already brought his family on stage at the last show of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour in North America, which was last weekend at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
He told his kids lovingly that they were the reason he was leaving his job.
John told E! News, “Of course I’m excited to spend more time with my sons.” “I also can’t wait to have more time to work on other projects, like the Elton John AIDS Foundation.”
The artist who wrote “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” wrote a sweet letter to Zachary and Elijah when he turned 75 in March.
John wrote, “You are 11 and 9 years old now. When I was your age, I could never have imagined where life would take me.”
“When I think about the past 75 years, I have a lot to be proud of and a lot to have learned.
“When I was young, I was told to fit in and do what other people wanted, even if it didn’t feel right. I now know that I can only be myself.
Being true to myself helped me find my voice and face my biggest fears.
John also said, “No matter what you grow up to be, just be you — all of you.”
