Elton John’s Seldom-Seen Sons Look Surprisingly Different at Oscars After-Party

Elton John, 75, who was unable to attend his own Oscar party, shared a photo of his two sons holding hands with Lady Gaga.

Elton John has gushed over his sons after they made a surprise appearance at his Oscars party as guests of honour.

Zachary and Elijah smiled as they held hands with their godmother Lady Gaga at the Elton John Aids Foundation Oscars viewing party.

Proud dad Elton shared the snap on his Instagram and captioned it: “So sad to miss these #EJAFOscars family photos tonight with @DavidFurnish, @LadyGaga and the boys but sending my love to all the world for their support of @EJAF. It means the world to us!”

Taking the stage with the Bad Romance hitmaker, Elton’s husband David Furnish, 59, praised the “two very special guests who inspire me and Elton every day.

Turning to the audience, he added, “Would you please say hello to Zachary and Elijah?”

Lady Gaga added: “It means so much to share tonight with my divine children.”

Elton, who recently celebrated his 75th birthday, was forced to miss his party after it ran into his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

The Oscars were postponed from February to March 27, but Elton didn’t want to disappoint fans who had to miss his tour earlier due to the pandemic.

It was the first time in 30 years that the event had taken place that the Rocket Man hitmaker had missed it.

A source told The Sun: “Elton is absolutely disgusted that he can’t party but it was completely out of his hands.

“When his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour was postponed, he kept the first Oscar date free.

“But when the ceremony was then moved, everything was already set in stone.”

His Oscars night raised tens of millions for his AIDS Foundation.

The couple have been together since 1993 and had Zachary via surrogate in 2010 and three years later Elijah via the same surrogate.

To celebrate his birthday, Elton wrote a letter to his two sons and published it in Time Magazine.

“You’re 11 and 9 now, and when I was your age, I could never have dreamed where life would take me,” he said.
