Eleven years ago this month, Sir Elton John proposed to his partner, David Furnish, thus formalising a relationship that — as the whole world knows — has blossomed into one of the most blissfully happy of showbusiness marriages.
We know this, of course, because Sir Elton and David have been generous enough to share almost every detail of their relationship and family life through the pages of celebrity magazines, in high-profile TV interviews and on social media.
Whether it has been to share pictures of their star-packed wedding, to announce the arrival of their two children born by a surrogate mother — even revealing they had her breast milk delivered to them by FedEx — or repeatedly posing for happy family snaps, they have revealed the most intimate moments of their perfect family life.
That is quite brilliant.
