Lady Gaga to be godmother to Sir Elton John’s son?By ANI

WASHINGTON - Sir Elton John’s partner David Furnish has sparked rumours that Lady Gaga will be their son’s godmother.
Furnish let slip in a recent interview that the couple are lining up the eccentric singer to play an important role in the life of their two-month-old son Zachary, who was born on Christmas Day last year via a surrogate mother.
“We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good! I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about Godparents later on,” Contactmusic quoted him, as telling Canadian website macleans.ca when asked about the rumours.
John and Gaga struck up a friendship after performing together at the Grammy Awards last year, and Furnish further praised the singer for her broad-mindedness and personal connection to her fans.
“She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all benefit from individuality,” said the film producer.
“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,” he added.
Furnish also explained how this message is what he feels makes Gaga an ideal role model for Zachary. (ANI)
