Elton John Wants to Adopt

Sir Elton is considering a new career: father. The singer has his heart set on adopting a 14-month-old toddler he and his partner David Furnish met at an orphanage in Ukraine while on a trip for his AIDS foundation. “David always wanted to adopt a child and I always said 'no' because I am 62 and I think because of the travelling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn't be fair for the child,” the pop star explained. “But having seen Lev today, I would love to adopt him. I don't know how we do that but he has stolen my heart. And he has stolen David's heart and it would be wonderful if we can have a home. I've changed my mind today.” Elton John has been with Furnish since 1993.
