Elton John is rightly known for doing things with a flourish. And that includes delivering breast milk to his son.

“We have the breast milk Fedexed from where she is,” says the musician, referring to the biological mother of his and partner David Furnish’s 4-month-old son, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John.

What the new parents don’t have, despite British tabloid reports to the contrary, are multi-million-dollar nurseries in their homes, four nannies in service, or special baby chefs.

“We have one nanny. And we’re very hands-on,” John told ABC’s Barbara Walters for a 20/20 interview. “And we take him to lunch.”
