Do we know who acted as God parents or who performed the Baptism ceremony?

Have not seen that mentioned anywhere at the moment, but apparently tv-show "rtl boulevard" will have a clip on the baptism tomorrow so who knows that'll have some more info
Foto's: Zoon prins Floris en Aimée gedoopt | RTL Nieuws

The baptism has been delayed (the child being born in july last year, normally the baptism would have been a bit sooner) because of the illness of P.Bernhard (brother of P.Floris)

ETA: found mention of godparents on royal-blog: Prince Pieter-Christiaan, prince Alexander von Isenburg, Floris Leeuwens and Cooske Alberda van Ekenstein-Ten Cate.

Thanks for the information on the godparents and the reason as to why the christening was late, as I had been wondering that. I find it interesting that Prince Alexander von Isenburg was chosen to be a godparent. Do we know how he is connected to Prince Floris and Princess Aimée?

And another thanks for those who shared the photos. Little Willem Jan looks adorable and I like how most of the family attended. Princess Mabel and her daughter's absence is understandable, as it must be very hard to lose someone who was so close to them, therefore I can imagine that Princess Mabel and her daughters are still in mourning.

The AAA's are also adorable as usual and it's great to see them again, and all the children look so grown up. I've always loved the names of Prince Floris and Princess Aimée's children, Magali and Eliane, they're very pretty.

I will be looking forward to the video clip tomorrow.

Funny fact from the clip from RTL-Boulevard:
Willem-Jan can already walk, so the family-members were joking to the reporters that it was the first time they saw the child actually walk to the baptism (which he did, he walked into the palace himself :-) )
You could tell that everybody was very relaxed and happy and glad that the sad times the RF had to endure in recent years are now in the past.

I'm surprised to see how Countess Eloise has grown up considering she's only 12.

No, they didn't attend the christening. They never do. Princess Irene and her children neither. Only Princess Margarita and her family were attending. I was hoping that Prince Carlos, Princess Annemarie and their two daughters would come, but the didn't.
