Elton John's youngest son Elijah Joseph Daniel turned 8 years old on Monday, and the music legend shared some photos of his birthday celebration on social media.

The Grammy Award-winning artist showed off decorations inside their home for Elijah's big day in the photo series.

One snap featured a huge balloon banner hanging on a bookcase that read, "Happy Birthday Elijah," as well as multi-colored flags hanging from the ceiling.

John also posted a photo of a big number "8" made entirely out of balloons, adorned with balloon figures of the characters from the video game Super Mario Brothers.
