Family Vacation in France with Neil Patrick Harris
But this is not quite the traditional holiday snap. There are four proud fathers, three babies – and not a mother in sight.
Sir Elton John, David Furnish and son Zachary posed happily alongside friends, actor Neil Patrick Harris, partner David Burtka and twins, Gideon and Harper, in St Tropez this week.
After their walk, the group, wearing breezy blue-and-white outfits, spent some time on a luxury yacht.
Sir Elton, 65, beamed as he played on board with Zachary, accompanied by a nanny.
He and filmmaker Furnish, 49, are planning a sibling for Zachary, born to a surrogate mother in 2010.
Sir Elton recently said they would ‘definitely’ be adding to their family, adding: ‘I don’t want him to be an only child.’
Patrick Harris, 39, who stars on US TV comedy How I Met Your Mother, and actor Burtka, 37, also had their twins via a surrogate mother. They will turn two in October, while Zachary is just a few months younger.
The friends have turned their joint family holiday into an annual event. Patrick Harris said Sir Elton and Furnish are ‘super great parents’, adding: ‘It’s really great to watch them interact.’
