Jade Goody Baptised

Jade Goody was baptised yesterday as she continues her preparations for the hereafter.

Terminally-ill reality television star Jade Goody was christened yesterday alongside her two sons in a "very short and emotional service", her publicist said.

Max Clifford said the "very pale and fragile" Goody was in a wheelchair and assisted by nurses during the service with her sons Bobby, five, and Freddy, four, at the Royal Marsden Hospital in west London. Her mother, Jackiey Budden, and husband, Jack Tweed, were there, with other family members and close friends.

Clifford said it was the last event Goody would do publicly. Doctors have told Goody, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in August 2008, that she has just weeks to live.

It's a right bitch (no, not Jade Goody herself, the situation) that a young woman should die so soon. As Goody herself noted:

Jade Goody and her sons were christened yesterday in a ‘very emotional’ ceremony at the hospital where she is being treated for terminal cancer.

The reality TV personality – who is feared to have only days left to live – took part in the ceremony with sons Bobby, five, and Freddie, four, in the chapel of the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.

The 27-year-old, sitting in a wheelchair and attached to a drip, was assisted by nurses during the 20-minute service. She was wearing a hospital gown and Freddie was sitting on her lap.

....

Ms Goody had insisted on being christened with her children as one of her final requests. Her 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.”’

Here's a little video clip of one of the things that made Jade Goody famous in the first place.

There are many more stories about Jade Goody's baptism across the press, of course. Here's a selection:
