Do the children have "godparents" or the equivalent? I have read a bit on islamic tradition but could not find this....and was curious. Does anyone know?
no godparents aren't part of Islamic tradition.
And you're question about whether Rania had a C-section, i dont know much about that sort of thing but the picture of Rania with the baby was taken the day after she gave birth. I'd assume that means she had a normal delivery. Unless she was strong enough after the surgery to get up and have her picture taken.
Many women do excercise during their pregnancy but they cant do anything too rigorous and certainly not close to the time of giving birth. I remember hearing that Julia Roberts was doing pilates during her pregnancy but was advised by her doctor to stop doing it. So I dont think that Rania was working out too much. Also, if you look at pictures of her when she was expecting Salma, she had a rounder face and was more chubbier compared to this time. I guess how much weight a woman gains varies from one pregnancy to another.
