Brian O’Driscoll has shared some snaps from his son’s christening – including one of the hilarious and unconventional prayers read out during the service.
The Irish rugby legend and his wife Amy Huberman celebrated their 10-month-old son Ted’s christening over the weekend.
The couple welcomed their third child during lockdown on December 28, 2020.
They are also parents to eight-year-old Sadie and six-year-old Billy.
Both Brian and Amy gave fans an insight into Ted’s big day by sharing some behind-the-scenes photos to Instagram.
Leinster legend BOD posted a photo of the incredible custom-made christening cake followed by a picture with Ted's godparents smiling at the altar before sharing a snap of an unorthodox prayer of the faithful about Ireland's rugby squad.
The prayer read: “Dear Lord, we pray that Ireland haven’t peaked again in the middle of the of a Rugby World Cup cycle and that we can finally get to the holy grail of a semi final. Lord hear our prayer.”
Captioning the post, the Dubliner wrote: “The chocolate biscuit cake was almost too pretty to eat @mackenziegenevieve (but we managed it). SAVAGE it was.
“Great day with family and friends and big shout out to @noelsmorris and Grelish for nailing their godparenting roles. Also not sure prayers of the faithful come any more heartfelt! #Ted”
Fans and friends flocked to the comments section to congratulate baby Ted on his christening day, including actor Victoria Smurfit, who said: “Congratulations Ted!”
Others wanted to let the couple know how much they enjoyed the rugby-themed prayer of the faithful, with one follower writing: “Love the prayer.. Can't we aim for a final please, o Lord as I get too much grief living here in London.”
Another said: “You guys are just gas. This is how all of life should be approached.”
While a third chimed in: “Lord gracefully hear us.”
