Victoria Beckham shared an adorable photo of Harper and Cruz Beckham being baptised, amid rumours the christening caused a rift with David’s dad, Ted.
The Spice Girl turned fashion designer 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 @davidbeckham x’.
Harper and Cruz looked angelic as they stood at the altar in their Sunday best, Cruz wearing a full suit while Harper went for a floor-length dress with beading.
It comes after rumours the religious ceremony caused a rift with David’s dad, Ted, after Victoria apparently ‘blocked’ Ted’s partner’s daughter Charlotte from attending.
An insider told The Sun: ‘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 the answer that came back apparently was: ‘sorry they couldn’t fit one more in.’
They added: ‘The bottom line is Victoria’s mistrust of any outsiders being brought into the fold.’
While some members of the extended family weren’t invited, the star-studded guestlist is said to have included Elton John and Eva Longoria, who was seen arriving at the Beckhams’ house this week.
Brooklyn and Romeo were baptised in 2003 and the family were planning to do the same for Cruz and Harper.
A source told Heat: ‘The christening is a bit of a surprise for everyone, but Victoria had been thinking about doing it for a while, and now she’s decided it’s very important.
‘Brooklyn and Romeo were christened together when they lived at Beckingham Palace in Hertfordshire, and Vic can’t believe she never got around to the two youngest – and now it’s become a pressing matter, as Cruz is 14 and she’s worried he won’t want to do it when he gets much older.
‘The guest list is pretty fabulous – Elton John and David Furnish [godparents to Brooklyn and Romeo], Eva [Longoria] and her family, the Ramsays, Guy [Ritchie], and [David’s BFF] Dave Gardner and Liv Tyler.’
