Victoria Beckham and her husband David posed with their children and godparents at the baptism today
David and Victoria Beckham went ahead with Harper and Cruz’s christening today amid reports the event had been ruined by a toxic family feud.
The couple had their two youngest children baptised at a church in the UK today, with godparents including actress Eva Longoria, singer Marc Anthony and hair stylist Ken Paves flying in from the US.
Also among the godparents was David’s best mate, David Gardner, who’s the partner of Hollywood actress Liv Tyler.
Victoria posted a picture of Harper, eight, and Cruz, 14, and wrote: “Proudest of days today watching Harper and Cruz being baptized in front of our friends and family.
“So much to be grateful for x With love, VB x I love u David Beckham.”
The celebrations after the event are said to be happening at the Beckhams’ Cotswolds manor house, with Sir Elton John and David Furnish expected to be among the guests.
However, reports of a family feud may have put a downer on the occasion.
Victoria was said to have fallen out with David’s dad Ted, 71, after his partner’s daughter Charlotte, 27, was reportedly snubbed from the guest list.
The Sun reported Ted, who is divorced from David’s mother Sandra, was invited with his new partner, 60-year-old millionaire and solicitor Hilary Meredith, but her daughter Charlotte wasn’t.
The source said: “Charlotte believes they are a family and should be invited as a unit, in the end Ted asked David if they could bring her.
“He said he’d speak to Victoria, but he came back and said sorry they couldn’t fit one more in.
“The bottom line is Victoria’s mistrust of any outsiders being brought into the fold.”
The source added all staff working at the event have had to sign non-disclosure agreements.
