A rep for Elton John has confirmed to ABC News Radio that he and his longtime partner David Furnish will marry this weekend.

The news that the two would take advantage of Britain’s legalization of same-sex marriage, which was enacted in March, was initially reported by a British tabloid. The wedding reportedly will be private.

Elton and David got a civil partnership in 2005, and they’ll now convert that status to marriage. The couple, who’ve been together for 20 years, have two sons: three-year-old Zachary and one-year-old Elijah.
