Why the celebrity godparent is the new A-list accessory
Thursday 3rd April 2014
Celebrity godparents – sounds like an awful Channel 5 reality show, doesn’t it?
And yet the whole world of famous family ties is a strictly A-list affair. Well, apart from Sinitta.
Yes, when it comes to their offspring’s spiritual guidance down the red carpet of life, celeb couples look for one of their own to lead. Here are some of the most glamorous godparents in the realm of the famous:
1. Sinitta is godmother to Simon Cowell’s son, Eric: They were in an on/off relationship for 20 years, and she’s widely believed to have been queen of the hareem: it’s therefore no surprise Simon Cowell has this week asked Sinitta to be godmother to little Eric.
After following him around like a lovesick puppy since the 80s and turning up on X Factor every five minutes, it’s clear the pair have a special bond.
Simon, whose partner Lauren Silverman gave birth on Valentine’s Day, asked Sinitta to do the honours on Mother’s Day. All together now: Ahhh. Although we wonder what Lauren makes of it all. . .
2. Sharon Osbourne is set to be godmother to Sam Bailey’s new arrival:
What is it with these X Factor stars? After coaching her to victory, Sam Bailey accepted mentor and rock goddess Sharon Osbourne’s offer to be godmother to her new little bundle of joy, which is due in September. And in a thoroughly modern exchange, it all played out on Twitter.
Mrs O got the ball rolling by posting: “@SamBaileyREAL I would be honoured to be your baby’s Godmother!” To which Sam, 36, responded: “@MrsSOsbourne wow..... I am so pleased xxx thank you xx I am one very lucky lady to have u in my life Mrs O xx.”
All very sweet – but what about poor Louis?!
10. Aretha Franklin was godmother to Whitney Houston: Is this one of the most musically talented families of all time?
Not only were Whitney’s cousins Dee Dee and Dionne Warwick, her godmother was Aretha Franklin. If ever there was a godmother who could dish out the best advice about singing, it’s Aretha. Respect!
