Sir Elton John praises Lady Gaga for being a fantastic godmother

Legendary musician Sir Elton John has revealed that pop sensation Lady Gaga is a fantastic godmother to his first son, Zachary.

During an interview with The Talk, he admitted that she is a wonderful role model and he's glad that she accepted the position of godmother: "She buys them presents on their birthdays and at Christmas, but more than anything, she's a good godmother."

Sir Elton added: "She comes and she bathes them, and she sings to them, and she tells them stories, which is the best thing of all; it's the personal thing... It's easy to buy a present and send it round; she doesn't just do that, she comes round and spends time with the children and that's what I love about her."

He also confessed that he tries not to spoil his children and instead prefers to try and keep them grounded: "They're kind of spoiled already because they don't live in a normal house; we don't live a normal lifestyle per se. (But) we try not to spoil them."

"They get £1 ($1.40) pocket money a week. They have three little dishes: one for pocket money, one for savings, and one for charity, and to do that (earn the pocket money), they have to do chores around the house. They help with the garden with the gardeners, they help take their plates up (after dinner), they help tidy their room. I just give them a sense of responsibility because God knows, they don't live a normal life, there's no pretending about that."
