Lady Gaga is to be a godmother to Elton John and David Furnish’s new baby son.

Furnish recently let slip in an interview that the bisexual star would be an important part of two-month-old Zachary’s life.

Speaking to Canadian website macleans.ca about rumours that Gaga would be Zachary’s godmother, he replied: “We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good!

“I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about godparents later on.”

John recently described Gaga’s single Born This Way as “the new gay anthem”.

He added: “She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all benefit from individuality.

“That’s the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love.”
