“I wish I’d done it earlier, because I’d love to have a little girl. But we have two great boys, they make life all worthwhile – it’s all about them now.”, the celebrity says about his children. As for the decision to quit touring, sir Elton tells the journalists that it is just too hard for him to be away from his little sons Zachary and Elijah, especially during family holidays like Christmas. He adds that there is no sense in having kids if you don’t devote time to them.
The couple want to provide their sons with as down-to-earth an upbringing as possible.
“I’m not putting any pressure on them to do anything,” he said.“They are not going to become showbiz kids, we don’t dress them in designer clothes, they just have a normal background.” Continuing he said: “It’s hard to keep their feet on the ground but so far, so good. They know what daddy does they know he’s a singer but they are more interested in their torches and Lego.”
