Jade Goody and her boys, Bobby Jack, 5, and Freddie, 4, were christened on Saturday, March 7, at the Royal Marsden Hospital. About 25 guests attended, and photographs were taken for OK! magazine. Jade wore her hospital gown for the ceremony. This was Jade’s last public appearance, and she’s said goodbye to her family and friends.

The service was about 20 minutes long and the boys were brought to the hospital by their father (Jade’s ex-boyfriend), Jeff Brazier. It had been the first time in a week that they had seen their mom.
Jade’s husband, Jack Tweed said, “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.”
Goody’s publicist Max Clifford believed Jade was giving her final kisses to those in attendance.
He said, “She spoke to everybody and thanked everybody as she was coming in, in a wheelchair. As she was coming back after the service, everyone, she was kissing and saying, ‘Goodbye’ and, of course, you read into that whatever you want to read into it.
“But she had a smile and a kiss for everyone there.”
Clifford said her boys aren’t fully aware of their mom’s condition, and experts would be helping “handle it very delicately.”
Clifford added, “It was a very short and very emotional service that, I think, everybody knew how important it was to Jade. We were just happy to see it could happen because, obviously, she was so fragile.”
