“Great day with family and friends and big shout out to @noelsmorris and Grelish for nailing their godparenting roles. Also not sure prayers of the faithful come any more heartfelt! #Ted”

Fans and friends flocked to the comments section to congratulate baby Ted on his christening day, including actor Victoria Smurfit, who said: “Congratulations Ted!”
