Elton John’s eldest son playing for Watford FC
Elton John’s son Zachary has signed for Watford FC! So the singer’s eldest son may not follow him into the world of music, but rather sport, since he is playing youth soccer.
Elton, 71, has supported the English Premier League team since he was a boy and was club chairman and owner from 1976 until 1987, and again from 1997 to 2002.
Speaking with the Daily Star newspaper about his two sons Zachary and Elijah, Sir Elton said “Zachary is incredibly into soccer, he plays for the Watford Academy team. Elijah loves music – they both do – but Elijah especially.”
The Rocket Man singer share Zachary, 8, and Elijah, 5, with husband David Furnish.
He said both kids are “thriving” but that he and David are determined not to spoil them so they can lead normal lives, adding: “They are great kids. We want them to have a normal life, go to school and not be celebrity kids.“
