6 Godfathers for Damian

Sunday 7 July 2002 @ 17:25 - GMT

NORMALLY at a Catholic christening there are two godparents - a godfather and godmother. But while two may be enough for most mere mortals, Liz Hurley broke with tradition to give baby son Damian six godfathers but no godmother at his christening yesterday.

They were her ex Hugh Grant, close friends Henry Dent-Brocklehurst and Teddy Forstman - who comforted Liz after the collapse of her 13-year relationship with Hugh before she began her affair with Damian's father, Steve Bing - Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, and US comedian Dennis Leary. Only 20 guests attended the service at the Church of Immaculate Conception in London's Mayfair, including England soccer captain David Beckham and wife Victoria, model Elle Macpherson and actress Patsy Kensit - as well as Liz's mum Angela and sister Katie.

Flanked by security guards, Liz was wearing a white - but typically understated - backless dress
