Elton John and his husband David Furnish are prominent figures in the entertainment industry. The question on everyone's lips is will their two children be following suit, especially with Elton retiring from music? 

In an interview with E! News, Elton was asked if his sons are musically inclined. The question came after John had his whole family on stage when he performed at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on November 20. 

Although the boys have been exposed to the limelight, the multi-award-winning singer says his sons, Zachary Jackson (11) and Elijah Joseph (9), are still too young for him to be able to tell if they will be following in his showbiz footsteps.  

"They are still so young, so not entirely sure," John told the publication.

He added that he will not be forcing his children to pursue music, but will support them regardless of the career they choose. "Whatever their dreams and ambitions are, my husband David and I will fully support them."
