David Furnish, Elton John's Husband, Celebrates 50th Birthday In Style

Wednesday night, Elton John pulled out all the stops to celebrate the 50th birthday of his husband, David Furnish, at the couple’s fancy new home in Los Angeles.

“Just to show you how amazing the home is, over 200 friends of the couple partied in the lavish, ultra-private home" in Beverly Hills, one person who attended the event tells me. “Amongst the crowd of friends and family was 'Will & Grace' star Eric McCormack, who was seen sipping on a Bombay Sapphire Martini.”

Also at the party were several very handsome male waiters, who made sure no glass was ever empty.

“Elton and David could not be more in love,” one insider tells me. “These two are the perfect poster couple for a great relationship, gay or straight.”

Elton and David met on Oct. 30, 1993, when a mutual friend invited Furnish to dinner at the singer’s mansion. It wasn't long before the relationship became serious. On Christmas Day 2010, the couple's son, Zachary, was born via surrogate mother.
