Wow! I'm surprised that there were pictures of the baptism released. Was there an announcement about the baptism taking place today?

I see Alexandra standing next to Tessy in the second picture -- does that mean she is a godparent?

Tessy is very pretty!

Thank you for the pictures! :)

According to Netty's Royal page

Quote:
The godparents of the baby are Princess Alexandra of Luxemburg and Ronny Antony, brother of Tessy.

It's rather nice that Alexandra is the god-parent of Gabriel, this means Gabriel is seen fully like a member of their "private" family.

I'm glad to see the Grand Duke & Grand Duchess were there for their son and baby grandson.
Anyone have any idea who else attended from the family????

Thanks for the photos. :)
I still can't help but see the parents as "babies" themselves. Guess I'm really showing my age.
Very good to see the parents and grandparents looking happy. Sweet baby.

Those are really sweet pictures! Gabriel is adorable. And I can't help but notice how Henri and MT look nothing like your stereotypical image of grandparents...

Yeah, the parents both look very young but I'm sure they are doing their best to be responsible parents.

Louis changed his hair no? He has a buzz cut (I think that's what it's called). He actually looks younger with his new hair.

Tessy has very nice hair though. She looks very nice.

I believe you can also see Guillaume in the first photo in the background. Does anyone know if Felix or Sebastien were present?

I'm happy for them, too- it's always good to have a child officially recognized, even if the parents aren't married, but I couldn't help but notice that Tessy's eyes looked sad. She's either tired from the baby, which isn't a long shot reason by any means, but she seemed happy, yet dispirited at the same time.

Nice pictures! Even if they are young parent you can tell that they adore their baby, and of course each other.

This was posted by Netty from GREMB
Quote:
Today at 15.00 Gabriel-Michael-Louis-Ronny, son of Prince Louis of Luxemburg and Tessy Antony, was christened at the parish church at Gilsdorf. The godparents of the baby are Princess Alexandra of Luxemburg and Ronny Antony, brother of Tessy. The christening was attended by family members of both families, including Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxemburg.
So I guess the baby's full name would be Gabriel-Michael-Louis-Ronny
