Terminally ill British reality star Jade Goody was christened today along with her sons in a ceremony at a London hospital chapel, the BBC reports. The “very pale and fragile” Goody had a “smile and a kiss for everyone” at the “very short and emotional service,” her publicist said. Attendees included the boys' father, Goody’s husband, and her mother. It was to be her last public event, the publicist noted.

The ceremony had been scheduled to take place in a church, but Goody was under heavy sedation. "Jade was obviously very happy with the whole thing," her publicist said. "I think everybody knew just how important it was to Jade." Goody is suffering from advanced cervical cancer and has 2 weeks to live, the BBC says.
