When it comes to asking someone to be a godparent of your child, a lot of things are important to keep in mind.  Who will take care of your child if something happens to you is a big decision.  Elton John - well he thinks that role should go to Lady Gaga!

Elton John has confirmed that Lady Gaga is the godmother of his son.

In his appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' this past weekend, the 'Rocket Man' joked about parenthood during the opening monologue, saying he still hasn't "lost the baby weight" and let it slip that Gaga was godmother. John and partner David Furnish recently became parents to son Zachary, who was born this past Christmas.

"For those of you concerned that we are unusual parents, don't worry," said John. "It's not like we are the only two people involved in the child's life. His godmother is Lady Gaga. That is true. It's not a joke. Lady Gaga is his actual godmother, which is ironic, because I've always said that Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos."
