It’s official – Lady Gaga is a godmother!
Sir Elton John let it slip this past weekend during his appearance on “Saturday Night Live’ that Gaga is indeed godmother to Zachary, the son he shares with partner David Furnish. The lucky little guy was born this Christmas, but to date the legendary musician has been mum over their choice of godparent.
On Saturday night, however, he unveiled the tidbit during his opening monologue, which was rife with jokes about his new parental status.
“For those of you concerned that we are unusual parents, don’t worry,” he said. “It’s not like we are the only two people involved in the child’s life. His godmother is Lady Gaga. That is true. It’s not a joke. Lady Gaga is his actual godmother, which is ironic, because I’ve always said that Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos.”
Gaga herself had previously refrained from commenting, telling BBC radio 1 that it wasn’t her place to make such a revelation.
“I don’t really want to reveal anything,” she said. “They’re going to make many lovely announcements about their beautiful son Zachary. I’m too much of a lady to talk about that on the air.”
Furnish, however, gushed earlier this year about how well suited she is for the role.
“She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance,” he said. “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.”

Awwww…isn’t that sweet!
I’m inclined to think Lady Gaga will be the perfect fairy godmother. After all, let’s face it, the whole godparent thing is less about being a moral compass these days than it is about the gift potential. I totally see Zachary as Patrick Dennis to her Auntie Mame.
