10 Celebrity Godparents
Being asked to be a godparent is a huge privilege but if you're a celebrity when it comes to selecting godparents, Mom and Dad usually turn to close friends. It makes sense then that celebri-parents often end up turning to their equally famous buddies.
For example, Elton John has ten godchildren!!! and Steven Spielberg is godfather to two Hollywood stars you'll find below.
Who needs a fairy godmother if your godparent's a Hollywood star :)

We receive lots of orders from godparents looking to buy a unique and personalised gift for their grandson or granddaughter - a photograph of the dawn on the day they were born which are especially popular as a newborn birth gift or a christening gift.
It's a moving way to tell someone special what you mean to them and something that they can treasure forever.
