Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John may only be seven years-old, but he has just signed a deal to join his dad’s beloved Watford FC.

Speaking about Zachary and his five-year-old son Elijah, Elton said: “They’re thriving. They’re seven and five now. Zachary is incredibly into soccer. He plays for the Watford Academy team.”

Sir Elton famously owned the Premier League football club for two spells between 1976 and 2002.
However, Elijah may prefer a career in music. “Elijah loves music – they both do – but especially Elijah,” Elton told the Daily Star.

Despite Elton’s fame, he is hopeful that his boys will not become “celebrity kids.”

He remarked:

“They are great kids. We want them to have a normal life, to go to school and not be celebrity kids.”
