Paternity Test to Confirm if Elton John is the Father of Baby

Apr 28, 2011 | Celebrity Paternity Test, DNA test, Paternity

Over the weekend, several news sources revealed that Elton John and his partner David Furnish will undergo a paternity test to determine which of the two men is baby Zachary’s father.
Zachary was born via a surrogate mother last December, with both men contributing sperm samples during the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process. As a result, without a DNA test, his biological paternity is uncertain.
As with many paternity clients, the couple sees the importance of determining a child’s biological father for the purpose of establishing the baby’s medical history. Any genetic influences over disease could be inherited and passed on through several generations, so this knowledge could impact medical diagnoses and decisions even beyond baby Zachary’s lifetime
DDC has performed DNA testing for surrogacy cases like these, as part of its Adoption DNA Testing Services. For more information about these testing services, please call us at 1-800-613-5768.
