Beth Ditto says it doesn't matter that Sir Elton John is an older father because he is so rich he can maintain his youth.
I did think he was going to be an old dad, but he's got the money to stay young. New kidney? You got it. New heart? Done.
The Gossip frontwoman thinks the 63-year-old singer - who along with his husband David Furnish became parent to baby Zachary through a surrogate mother last Christmas Day (25.12.10) - won't find fatherhood tough as he can just buy new body parts if his body starts to fail.
She joked: "I did think he was going to be an old dad, but he's got the money to stay young. New kidney? You got it. New heart? Done."
Elton is known for his vast spending sprees but despite his wealth, he has previously said he is determined the tot will remain grounded.
He said: "I so value my own childhood now, and the sense of wonder and personal discovery that I enjoyed, that we want to give Zachary - as much as we possibly can - the same thing. A solid old-fashioned childhood, if you like.
"I know it'll be hard with my life, but we want him to have that same normality and for things in life to have real value. So we don't intend to spoil him - we're going to try to give him a fun, carefree time of innocence, freedom, love and stability."
