Sir Elton John has chosen Lady GaGa to be godmother to his baby son Zachary
The singer and his partner David Furnish — who welcomed the boy in December last year — want the Poker Face hitmaker to be part of their son’s life because she’s a strong campaigner for gay rights and is an active supporter of raising HIV and AIDS awareness.
During an interview this week, Furnish was asked if GaGa — real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – was going to be godmother to Zachary.
Furnish was being interviewed by Canadian magazine Macleans, and the reporter asked him, “Correct me if I’m wrong but Lady GaGa has been named Zachary’s godmother. What led you to choose her?’
“We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good!” Furnish replied.
“I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about godparents later on.
“GaGa is all about inclusiveness and tolerance
“She believes you can be whoever you want to be, we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and we can all benefit from individuality.
“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.”
