|David celebrates turning 50 with four parties
Saturday, October 27 2012
It's surely one of the most exciting landmark birthdays to reach. So when David turned 50, who better for him to mark the special day with than his husband Elton and son Zachary.
The filmmaker was seen holding son Zachary, one, close as the pair cuddled up while out in Los Angeles on October 25, 2012, ahead of his big day on October 26, 2012. Birthday boy David looked smart in a dark navy suit, purple shirt and matching tie, while little Zachary looked equally dapper in his buttoned-up cardigan, with shorts and a shirt and blue, red-soled trainers.
The pair were seen walking slightly ahead of Elton, who wore his staple black ensemble with a jacket and white V-neck T-shirt. He brightened up the outfit with a colourful pocket square and pink-lens glasses.
While the day may not have been particularly exciting, given that the pair were in court for an ongoing libel case, Elton did pull out all the stops with a star-studded party in the evening. According to reports, Elton decided to host the celebration at the Los Angeles mansion the pair recently purchased, and ensured every effort was made to make the evening as enjoyable as possible for David. Upcoming band the Gypsy Queens provided the entertainment.
The party doubled as a housewarming for the couple's spacious mansion, the purchase of which fuelled rumours they are expecting their second child via the same surrogate who gave birth to Zachary in December 2010. Speaking previously about his desire to have another child, Elton said in an interview on Daybreak that he and David are 'definitely' going to be adding to their brood in the future. He added: 'At what stage we don't know, but we definitely will. I don't want him to be an only child.'
The party which doubled as a housewarming event was only the start of the lavish celebrations to mark David's milestone. On Day Two after getting their beauty sleep at the Four Seasons, the A-list guests joined David on his actual birthday for a special dinner in the ballroom of the 112-year-old Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Renowned chef Ludo Lefebvre is said to be the man behind his birthday meal and the Circque de Soleil will provide the entertainment.
Day three of the celebrations, will see David and his guests head to the Greystone Manor nightclub where veteran singer Cher is expected to take to the stage for and exclusive performance. And if he's still standing on the final day, Furnish can look forward to another party - Sin City Style! Guests will be driven 300 miles to Las Vegas, and given the best seats in town to see Elton's Million Dollar Piano show at Caesars Palace, with a private after- party in the hotel to round off the epic celebrations.
