They've handled it unbelievably well. The first day a short, but truthful, birth announcement with the full name; more than a few words from the father on leaving the hospital in three languages - and, between all those languages, giving a couple of extra details, the C-section, the long-awaited element, even a possible day they might leave hospital; then the iPad photos that night. The next day some official photos; then a good photo opportunity outside the hospital where the whole of that beautiful baby's face could be seen; and then plenty of photos of the father registering the birth, posing with giant teddy etc. Well played, both the press and the public have what they want, no-one feels shortchanged, and now the new family can be left in peace....

they did just like our friends who are now living in LA, eh? Whistle Smiley

Adorable baby, and so lovely to see Steph and Gui looking so genuinely happy (and tired, but that is to be expected wth new parents!).

I feel like this has been a long time coming and that the moment of finally holding their baby in their arms was a struggle.

Just lovely to see those photos and video - happy tears sprang to my eyes!
They shared such loving and tender gazes with each other and their precious son.

With respect to christening, in very devout Catholic families, this often happens very soon and is often not a hugely public event. I happened to see my mother's baptismal certificate the other day and noticed that she was not yet one week old.  I think in this time of the virus, this little one's baptism will be private and soon, for the protection of the baby, his parents, and, for that matter, the clergy. Perhaps later there can be a more festival welcome-to-the-world celebration, but I would suspect the baby's parents view baptism as a significant spiritual event in the child's life more than anything else.

In the past I think there was a reason for the very quick christenings. As in that time non-christened babies weren't allowed to be burried on Catholic graveyards and related. And in earlier times, infant mortality was much greater.

The Catholic Church teaches that baptism is essential for a soul to enter heaven and therefore the ritual must take place as near to birth as possible. For decades, newborns and infants who die before baptism were deemed ineligible for salvation and were not buried on consecrated, or holy, ground. In several countries, priests return to this and often turn a blind eye to the burial of unbaptized children in a Catholic cemetery.

I am aware that someone in the Netherlands has made a very beautiful work of two hands, which symbolically connects the consecrated ground of a Catholic cemetery with the unconsecrated ground next to it. To represent connection between the parents (in consecrated ground) and the unbaptized children (in consecrated ground).
