They became proud parents for a second time when they welcomed son Elijah into the world in January.

But despite being delighted to have given their first-born, Zachary, two, a baby brother, David Furnish has insisted he and Sir Elton John's family is now 'complete' and they won't be having any more children in the future.

The 50-year-old director admitted he and the 66-year-old musician are thrilled to seen their two young sons having found a 'companion' in each other.

'We really wanted a second child so that the boys have a companion in each other. They really need each other. But we won't be having any more.'

Thursday night sees the couple host the 15th annual White Tie and Tiara Ball to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, but David insisted the boys will be tucked up in bed rather than mingling with their parents' showbiz pals.

He added to MailOnline: 'The boys will be on the other side of the house. But Coldplay will be playing in my back garden. We're hoping to raise £5 million on the night.'

Speaking previously about his love for his growing family, Sir Elton admitted that such was the intensity of love he feels for their firstborn, who was born on Christmas Day 2010, he was worried if he would ever be able to love another child as much.

ĎBut I have learned that a parentís capacity for love is endlessí he said. 'When another child is born, our depth of love just grows deeper and wider, so it was very emotional.

And David added at the time of Elijah's birth in January 2013: 'Throughout our lives we have both loved and been loved, but the love of a parent for his or her child is different to anything else, as all parents will know. You find new depths of love, and experience pure joy.

'Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable.

'The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.'

Hands on: David has ruled out the couple having any more children in the future
