Elton John would like to adopt a Ukranian kid he met on an orphanage tour. And before you ask, he’s 62. His partner is only 46, though. John mentions that although his partner has long wanted to adopt, he thought it wouldn’t be fair to the child because of his age and the amount of time he travels.
But now maybe he’s changed his mind. Because the kid is just so darn cute.
John said he was motivated in part by the sudden death last week of one of his closest friends, keyboardist Guy Babylon.
“It broke my heart because he was such a genius and so young and has two wonderful children,” John said. “What better opportunity to replace someone I lost than to replace him with someone I can give a future to.”
