Choosing the people to support your child as they journey through life is a really important decision. Traditionally children have three godparents (two godmothers and a godfather for girls and the opposite for boys), nowadays though, there’s lots of flexibility and within reason, you can choose as many as you like (my lucky kids have got four each!).
Whether it’s treasured family members or much-loved friends, they’ll be thrilled, as it’s an honour to be asked and it tells them just how special they are to you.
