Have your tissues ready for this one: Elton John and his 92-year-old mother, Sheila, have officially put their rocky past behind them.
Elton shared a sweet message to his mother on Instagram for Mother's Day, unexpectedly confirming that he is back on good terms with Sheila after years of estrangement and feuding.
"Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day! So happy we are back in touch," he wrote. "Love, Elton xo."

The mother and son had a falling out in 2008, with tabloids reporting that Elton was angry his mother remained close with two friends he'd cut out of his life. However, he told the Daily Mail that he's chosen to let bygones be bygones.
"Out of respect for my mother's privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship," he said. "However, I can say that we are now back in touch and have been so since my mother's 90th birthday."
The peaceful reunion is likely a relief for both Elton and his mother, who divorced when Elton was 15. An only child, Elton had a poor relationship with his father -- he never once even saw Elton perform. "My father was sealed off from my talent and I never knew why," Elton once wrote. "Was it homophobia? Was it fear?" His father has since passed away.
We're glad Elton and his mom are back on track with a positive relationship!
