The music icon, 72, is already father to two sons, Zachary, eight, and Elijah, six, and gushed that being a parent is 'fantastic' during an interview with The Sun.
Elton, who is currently on his goodbye tour Farewell Yellow Brick Road, explained that as a dad he has 'other things to do' with his time, as he prepares to close the door on his touring career.
In the last decade Elton has married his long-term partner David and welcomed their two sons, but he claimed that he never expected his life to take this turn of events.
He revealed to the publication: 'It's fantastic being a dad. Ten years ago if you'd have told me that, I'd have said you're crazy.'
