The reality tv star and her personal trainer hubby marked little Aaron Jay's christening on Easter Sunday at Ballyroan Church, where they also had their two-year-old daughter Faith's baptism.

They marked the day with only close family and select friends.

Doting mum Michelle carefully clung on to her newborn son, who adorably snuggled into her arms on their way to the ceremony.

And the fashionista opted for a conservative look for the day, wearing a blush pink lace dress and nude peep toe heels by Christian Louboutin, while Hugh looked dapper in a charcoal suit.

While today may have been about AJ, little Faith dressed up for the occasion in a too-cute white tulle dress with matching shoes.

Today's celebration was all the more poignant for the family after their five-week-old was rushed to hospital where he was treated for meningitis.

Most people with viral meningitis will suffer flu-like symptoms, such as headaches and fever.

In more severe cases, symptoms may include neck stiffness, muscle or joint pain, nausea, vomiting and photophobia (sensitivity to light). 

Some suffering with the illness - like baby Aaron - need to be treated in hospital, with an initial dose of antibiotics and then intravenous fluids.

Michelle and Hugh have recently appeared in OK! magazine with Aaron and two-year-old daughter Faith.

In November 2012, Michelle underwent a double mastectomy, just months after she discovered she had the BRCA2 gene.
