Elton John and husband both claim to be ‘fun dad’ with kids

Elton John spoke to Confidenti@l at his foundation’s annual gala, but forgot the answer to the most vital question made well-known by Joan Rivers — who are you wearing?
The singer couldn’t remember which designer he had on, so hubby David Hand looked inside his jacket to reveal it was Chez Alex of Hollywood.
The duo talked about their kids, Zachary, 4, and Elijah, 2, and said neither of them play terrible cop when it comes to disciplining the boys.
“We’re both fun dad,” they said simultaneously, with John adding, “We’re strict but not that strict.”
“Zachary’s at school and Elijah’s at preschool,” John said, hinting that his musical genius may be influencing his older boy.
“Zachary’s having piano lessons, but he questioned to have them. I didn’t say anything. No, he just knows what middle C is right now. He’s not (famed classical pianist) Arthur Rubinstein, believe me.”
Hand revealed the kids saw John perform live for the first time last weekend.
“They’d never seen him on stage do any type of concert before, so they saw the first three numbers of his show in Vegas,” he said. “They were kind of overwhelmed in the sweetest way, like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know Daddy could do that.’ So it was really nice.”
