SIR Elton John is determined his baby son becomes a music fan before he's a toddler - the tot has his own miniature iPod.
The Rocket Man and his partner David Furnish welcomed little Zachary via a surrogate mother at Christmas (25Dec10), and they are revelling in their new roles as parents.
The singer is eager for his child to have great taste in tunes, so he has downloaded his favourite songs onto an MP3 music player for the baby - and the selection includes some of his own classic hits.
He tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "It's a teen-tiny little thing, so small you can hardly believe it even is an iPod, but David and I put it together for him. He has Chopin, Mozart, Carole King, the Carpenters, James Taylor, me, Kate Bush, Linda Ronstadt. Oh, and lullabies by Led Zeppelin, so it's a nice mix.
"This boy is going to grow up surrounded by all the good things. Great music, great art, lots of travel, lots of time with our wonderful artistic friends, so he's going to be inspired for the whole of his life."
