Sir Elton And David Name Their Godmother…Lady Gaga

Sir Elton John and David Furnish have chosen a godmother for their baby son Zachary – and it’s Lady Gaga!

Sir Elton, 63, and Furnish, 48, have been friends with the eccentric singer for years, bonding over their campaigning for HIV/AIDS awareness and gay rights. Sir Elton and Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) have also performed together many time.

At least she’ll never be short of fancy dress outfits for little Zachary’s birthday parties!

So why did they choose her? “She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance,” Furnish told Canadian magazine Macleans.

“She believes you can be whoever you want to be, we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and we can all benefit from individuality,”

“That’s the best message in the world – the freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love.”

The couple, holidaying in Hawaii this week with their two month-old baby, have also asked their good friend magazine editor Ingrid Sischy and her partner Sandy Brant to be Zachary’s godmothers.
