Cancer-stricken reality TV star Jade Goody and her two children were christened today in a 'very short and emotional service', her publicist said. Max Clifford said the 'very pale and fragile' Goody was in a wheelchair and assisted by nurses during the service with her sons Bobby, five, and Freddy, four, at the Royal Marsden Hospital in west London. He said it was the last thing that Goody would do publicly and added that she had a 'smile and a kiss for everyone who was there'. Mr Clifford said before the service: 'Jade is much the same as she has been for the last three days. She is heavily sedated and sleepy.' 'The ceremony will now take place in the hospital chapel in front of close family and friends.' A church near Jade's Essex home - the same church where her wedding took place - had been booked for the christening. Both ceremonies were part of an exclusive magazine deal worth almost £1million brokered to provide Jade with the funds to secure her sons futures. Yesterday OK! magazine warned media outlets against reproducing any photographs from the christening issue or even the cover. Jade said before being forced to undergo bowel surgery this week: 'I want them to understand that mummy will be in heaven watching over them. 'It's really important that they learn about Jesus.' A source told The Sun: 'Jade genuinely wants to be baptised before she dies. She is still hoping this can be done. But time is running out for her.' Poignant pictures of Jade during the run-up to her wedding have emerged showing the star in better health. They were taken as part of the film of Jade's wedding preparations which are set to be broadcast next week on Living TV. The mother of two who wed husband Jack on February 25 says in the film: 'I'm really excited to be Jack's bride.' Husband Jack Tweed, 21, her mother and close friend Kevin Adams have been Jade's only visitors in recent days.
