Sir Elton told Miss DeGeneres that having children had been the greatest experience of his life. "If you'd said to me ten years ago I'd be sitting on your show married to the man I love and have two beautiful children, I would have said you put acid in my drink. But life throws you challenges and curve balls and great curve balls and these two children have come along at a time I never thought I'd have children. They are the greatest thing in our lives."
