Daisy Fuentes shows off future godson

DaisyfuentesgodsonCuban model/TV personality, Daisy Fuentes (l), and Mexican actor Eduardo Verastegui, couldn’t stop showing off their future godson, Pablito, 6 months, during a photo shoot on March 3rd in Los Angeles. Dad, Mexican singer/actor, Pablo Montero, had announced the godparents for the Mexican baptism ceremony during his girlfriend’s pregnancy.  The second of two baptisms will be held in May in Coahuila, Mexico since Pablo hopes for some nice weather.

…The weather will be better by then…and it will be a beautiful ceremony where so many people that I love will go.

Pablito’s first baptism was held in Argentina on Christmas Day with a different set of godparents.  Pablito’s mother, Pablo Montero’s girlfriend, is actress/model Sandra Vidal.

Is there a Mexican tradition of having two sets of Godparents as well as two baptisms? I have never heard of this! Being Catholic, we have one baptism and thats it.

Anya’s note: The first ceremony was a more intimate family-oriented baptism. Pablo and Celia wanted their family to be a part of the baby’s life too, so the godparents of that ceremony were Celia’s sister and brother-in-law. The second baptism in May will include extended family and friends. Other than their choice to do family and friends separately, there is no Mexican tradition of two baptisms.

I was thinking the exact same thing, Snow. I am also Catholic, and I have never heard of having 2 baptisms or 2 sets of godparents. Interesting.

It must be a culture thing. There’s really no reason for two baptisms. Daisy’s dress is quite revealing.

Eduardo Verastegui is really popular with new parents. He’s also the godfather of Ali Landry’s baby.

There’s really no reason for two sets of Godparents…other than you couldn’t choose between the two.

My mother chose 2 godmothers for my brother, because she can’t choose, and the priest said your allowed to have 2 godmothers and 2 godfathers if you really want. Also spanish people do something called godparents through water, and that’s usually done at home and you don’t need a priest to perform it, just some prayers and it’s done among family usually.

Canon law controls the what or when of a baptism, not custom.

You will note that canonically, there can be one godparent, but if there are 2, one must be male and one must be female.

Baptism is conferred once, uno, une, eins. This is so important, the Church will not baptize a convert who has been baptized using the proper formula. If there is a doubt, the Church will conditionally baptize, but never tromp on a baptism known to be “good” even if it was done in the Baptist, Assemblies of God, or another trinitarian ecclesial community.

So, what is going on with Daisy Fuentes is showmanship and showing off, pure and simple. I hope somebody explained that there has to be reasonable expectation that the child will be raised Catholic for him to be baptized in the first place.
