Terminally ill Jade Goody and her two sons are christened in an ‘emotional service’

Jade Goody was christened this weekend with her two young sons in a ‘short and emotional service’, said her spokesman. The reality TV star and her sons Bobby, five, and Freddy, four, were christened at the Royal Marsden hospital in London.


Max Clifford said Jade, who was in a wheelchair for the short service, was ‘very pale and fragile’ and assisted by nurses. She was christened in her hospital gown with her drip still attached.

‘She finds it very hard to stay awake for more than a few minutes but she stayed awake for the 20 minutes of the service,’ Clifford said.

It is believed to be the last public event that Jade will undergo. ‘Speaking for myself – I'm no medical expert – but I doubt she will leave. This is the best place for her,’ Clifford added.

Jade, 27, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in August last year and has been told she has just weeks to live.

Clifford said he believes she has said goodbye to some of her friends and family who came to the christening, but said her sons were not aware ‘how bad their mum is’.

Jade married boyfriend Jack Tweed, 21, on 22 February. She had hoped the christening would take place in a church, but was transferred to the Royal Marsden after a bowel operation.

Tweed and the boys' father, Jeff Brazier, both attended the christening.

'Jade was obviously very happy with the whole thing; Jeff was there on one side, Jack was there on the other side... I think everybody knew just how important it was to Jade,' said Clifford.

She has sold the picture rights of the christening and her wedding to OK! magazine in order to raise as much money as possible for her two sons.
