With just over a month until his second birthday, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John proved he's not too young to walk tall with his superstar dad on tour.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish's adorable son was spotted standing on his own two feet at a Sydney airport on Sunday afternoon.

The Rocketman singer and his family are currently down under for a sell-out tour.

The tour was not originally intended for Elton, but actually for George Michael.

However, the Careless Whisper singer pulled out of his dates so he could continue his recovery after beating a life-threatening bout of
pneumonia last year.

Not
bearing to be apart from his young son, Sir Elton ensured Zachary and his civil partner David
joined them in Sydney to keep him company.

The little lad wore a cute outfit made up of a striped T-shirt underneath denim dungarees and plimsolls with bright green laces.

His father Elton was wearing his
typical off-duty look, a black Adidas tracksuit, which might have been an
uncomfortable choice for the hot weather.

David showed off his well-kept frame
in a white V-neck top and dark grey jeans with brown boots, and
underneath his sunglasses he made sure to keep an eye on his blonde boy
as he strolled outside the private jet.

However, no matter how well Zachary
could walk on his own, there were no chances taken when it came to
boarding, as a female helper kept close by to guide Zachary up the
stairs.

As the family travel to the next stop on tour, they'll no doubt be looking forward to expanding their brood, with a new sibling for Zach on the way, born from the same surrogate as their first child.

A source told Thedaily.com: 'He hired the same surrogate to make another baby. [She's now] in her first trimestre.'
