Eldest son Zachary plays for the Watford FC Academy, the youth team of English professional football club Watford FC, where John was chairman from 1976 to 2002.
Elton John has told the British press what kind of father he is, revealing that his two sons are spoiled by the way they live, but not when it comes to following the rules.

However, it doesn’t look like Elton John and his partner David Furnish can leave their two children empty-handed.
