Showing a penchant for luxury bath robes, Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish sat down for an exclusive chat with Barbara Walters on "20/20" -- the couple's first major U.S. television interview since the birth of their son Zachary, whom the couple greeted on Christmas day via surrogate delivery.

In the interview, Elton, 64, and David, 48, discuss why they wanted a child, how they kept the baby a secret until he was born, and how fatherhood has changed them both. They also introduce viewers to their adorable son, who's now 4-and-a-half months old, and it looks like they even got a helping hand from their old friend Barbara with their little boy!

Elton also shares that he will be returning to Las Vegas for a three-year residency at Caesars Palace in September -- a move that will give the jet-set family a solid home base while Zachary is young.

Back in January, Elton and David revealed that they had left it to chance to determine who would be the biological father of their baby. "We both contributed," Furnish told the U.K.'s OK! magazine, adding, "For the time being we don't have a clue. We look at him every day and at the moment he has Elton's nose and my hands. Neither of us care [who the father is]. He's our child. The important thing is that he's healthy and happy and loved."

Elton and David's "20/20" interview airs Friday, April 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
