Jade Goody and her two sons were christened on Saturday (07.03.09) at the hospital where she is being treated for terminal cancer.
The reality TV star - who is thought to only have weeks to live - was determined to be baptised along with five-year-old Bobby and four-year-old Freddie.
The ceremony was held in the chapel of London's Royal Marsden Hospital after earlier plans for a church ceremony were scrapped due to Jade's ailing health.
Jade, 27, sat in a wheelchair and was attached to a drip throughout the service, which was attended by a small group of friends and family, including the boys' father Jeff Brazier.
After the ceremony, Jade's spokesman Max Clifford said: "This is Jade's way of keeping in touch with the boys. Her words were, 'They have got Jesus around them now.'"
"It is in my mind that she was saying her final goodbyes to people as she was smiling and kissing them on the way out. For some people, it will be the last time that they see her. It was very emotional."
Jade's new husband Jack Tweed, 21, told friends: "It was a very special occasion, especially for the boys. We are both glad we were able to do this and the hospital has been brilliant.
"It was important to take this opportunity to have this christening today. The boys were so good. They are such a credit to their mum."
The ceremony was conducted by the hospital's chaplain and Jade's local vicar.
