Elton John Turns 76 and Gets the Most Meaningful Surprise From His Husband and 2 Sons
Elton John was feeling extra blessed on his big day. The music legend celebrated his birthday in a cozy way at home with his husband David, 60, and their 12-year-old and 10-year-old boys. And the surprise he received from his partner was a huge gesture of love that proved that even after 3 decades together, the couple’s bond is stronger than ever.
Elton had the most magical birthday.
Sir Elton shared glimpses of his big day with his 4.4 million Instagram followers. The series of snaps included some massive pink and gold balloons, a snap of the special surprise he got from David, as well as an absolutely adorable birthday cake that stole the show.
The piano-themed cake made of colorful fondant icing depicted a scene with the family of 4 hanging out together.
It showed an edible Elton wearing his signature big glasses and playing piano while David stared lovingly into his eyes. Their 2 sons, Zachary and Elijah, are seemingly sliding down piano keys while listening to their dad’s music.
His surprise present was so meaningful.
Among the snaps that Elton shared on Instagram, we could see a glimpse of the 100 oak trees that David gifted him.
The trees, which are not fully grown, were sprigs from acorns from an old tree that had been part of Sir Elton’s driveway for years.
The beaming husband and father expressed his joy by sharing, ’’I absolutely loved my birthday!’’ He added that it was a ’’magical day’’ with his husband and their 2 ’’beautiful sons.’’
The star continued, ’’From the most spectacular cake — to the gift of 100 oak trees grown from acorns off the old tree that’s been gracing my driveway for centuries, it was a real celebration.’’
Elton concluded his message by thanking all the friends and fans ’’who sent flowers and beautiful messages.’’
And indeed, there were thousands of people who wrote their best wishes to the music icon, including celebrities like Taron Egerton, who played him in the 2019 biopic Rocketman, fashion designer Donatella Versace, and actress Toni Collette.
His partner David is his biggest fan.
His husband David dedicated a post in honor of the love of his life, where he shared a series of pics of the famous singer on stage and at home as well as a sweet photo of the couple together.
60-year-old Furnish wished a happy birthday to an ’’amazing husband, father, artiste, philanthropist, and best friend.’’ He also mentioned how, at 76, Elton is still ’’selling out stadiums — playing and singing better than ever!’’
The couple met back in 1993 at a dinner party organized by their mutual friend. Their 15-year age gap didn’t stand in the way of their instant connection, and the pair went on their first date the day after they met.
We admire how this inspiring duo’s love is still going strong after 30 years together, and we wish Sir Elton John many more years filled with joy, creativity, and wonderful music.
