The couple welcomed their second son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John (that's a mouthful!), on Friday, Jan. 11 in Los Angeles via surrogate, John and Furnish confirmed to British magazine HELLO. Little Elijah was born at 6:40 p.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 4 oz.
"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way," John, 65, and Furnish shared in a statement. "It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."
This is the second child for the couple, who married in 2005.
