Inside Elton John’s lavish birthday celebration for David Furnish


They are one of the showbiz world’s most beloved couples who have been together for 25 years.

And Elton John spoiled David Furnish on his 56th birthday on Thursday with a selection of designer gifts, with a glimpse given into the stars’ lavish American home.

The filmmaker shared a stunning snap of the pair’s dining and living rooms, with the elegant glass table filled with an array of thoughtful gifts, with a smiling Elton, 71, clad in a shiny emerald tracksuit posing for the camera.

Showing his affection for his husband of 13 years, stunningly wrapped gift boxes from Versace and Hermes were seen on the table.

Indulging his sweet tooth a box of gourmet delights from Atlanta-based Sublime doughnuts was also presented to David.

Colourful balloons and envelopes decorated the table, which was surrounded by bespoke Versace chairs.

Showing off his playful side, Elton presented David, who is worth an estimated $50m, with a fun card which read ‘Birthday boy still looking like a million dollars’ 

Two gorgeous bouquets of yellow and cream roses took pride of place, with beautiful lilies completing the floral display. 

David shared a snap of the pair’s sons Zachary and Elijah helping their father tuck into his delicious, sprinkle-covered birthday cake. 

Revealing the pair’s stunning home, expensive artwork and elegant vases decorated the living space.

The divide between the dining and living room was flanked by marble pillars, with a white leather sofa and an oil painting seen in the background.

Elton looked to be enjoying the welcome break amid his three-year farewell tour, after which he has confirmed he will retire from touring to spend more time with his family, but hasn’t ruled out the release of new music.

The singer, who has been touring for 50 years, has promised to ‘go out with a bang’, but says he’s quitting touring so he can ‘dedicate more time’ to his two sons and husband.

Sir Rod Stewart hit back at Sir Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour last week, labelling it a ‘dishonest’ way to retire and said that his tour ‘stinks of selling tickets’.

The singer, 73, told a US talk show that he will not announce his retirement when the time comes, but instead ‘just fade away’.
