Elton John to become full-time dad

Los Angeles - Sir Elton John may quit music to become a full-time dad.

The 66-year-old singer - who, along with husband David Furnish, welcomed son Zachary into the world on Christmas Day in 2010 - says he will reassess his career once his little boy starts school as he knows how important it is to be there for him.

Elton told the BBC: "While I'm feeling good, I'm going to keep working. When Zachary goes to school, that's another different thing."

"I want to take him to school and I want to pick him up. I don't want to miss that part of his childhood."

'It's going to be heartbreaking'

The Rocket Man hitmaker also says he is dreading Zachary - who was born via a surrogate mother - finding out he only has two fathers and not a mum.

He said: "It's going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn't got a mummy. But he's so happy.

"I've never seen a more contented child. And you have never seen two more contented people as David and I."

However, the couple - who married in a civil partnership in December 2005 - would love another child as they think it's important for Zachary to have a sibling.

Elton said: "I'd love to have more children. I want Zachary to have a brother or a sister to go to school with him, and so that he can have someone to play with."

    Better two loving parents of the same sex than a hetrosexual couple who beat their baby until he is blind and brain damaged, or break his little one month old bones and leave him battered and bruised. If two people who love each other can give a child a better life - then it can only be a happy ending.

    How can he be a full time Dad when he has a husband? The poor child.
