Sir Elton John and David Furnish are proud parents to their two young sons, Zachary, 12, and Elijah, ten, and over the weekend the singer announced that their family has expanded once more.

David shared a post for Father's Day with an adorable picture of a tiny black labrador puppy, sweetly captioned "This Father's Day, we are happy to announce the newest arrival to the Furnish-John family. Please meet Jacob 🐶😍. 

Elizabeth Hurley's model son Damian was quick to react, commenting: "Can't wait until he gets to meet his Uncle Shivraj ❤️ xx,"

Actress Sharon Stone responded: "I'm in love," adding three heart-eyes emojis.

Other followers added: "Hello Jacob! You're a very lucky boy," "Gorgeous! Enjoy! And Happy Father's Day," and "Happy Father's Day! Welcome Jacob, you are a cute and lucky guy".

Elton and David tend to keep their sons out of the public eye, only rarely sharing photos or insights into their family life but a couple of months ago, David posted some pics of the two boys at David Hockney's exhibition in London.

Happy Father's (and Grandfather's) Day to the happy family! ❤️
