Los Angeles: Pop diva Lady Gaga is all set to become the godmother to Elton John and David Furnish`s baby boy.

Film producer Furnish let slip in a recent interview that the couple are lining up the `Bad Romance` hit maker to play an important role in the life of their two-month-old son, Zachary, born on Christmas Day via a surrogate mother, reported gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

When asked about rumours they would choose Gaga as the godmother, Furnish said, "We haven`t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good! I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about Godparents later on."

John and Gaga struck up a friendship after performing together at the Grammy Awards in 2010, and Furnish further praised the singer, who composed her latest track `Born This Way` about social inclusion and has called it a "gay anthem" - for her broad-mindedness and personal connection to her fans.

"She`s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don`t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all benefit from individuality.

"That`s the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love," said Furnish.
