Lady Gaga has been selected to be the godmother of her childhood friend’s baby.
The popstar has taken to social media to share that her friend Brian Newman and his wife Angie had chosen her to be the godmother to their daughter Sistilia, and went on to post several photos of the baby’s baptism.
To celebrate the occasion, Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, shared a sweet black and white photo of her holding the baby, who was dressed in a traditional white dress. The Applause singer shunned her typical avant-garde outfits and went for a more conservative look, wearing a white button-up shirt with white baby’s breath flowers in her hair.
“So proud to be made one of the Godmother’s of our little angel Sistilia,” she captioned the snap on Instagram. “@briannewmanny and his Wife Angie have been my friends since we were kids on the lower east side. It was a beautiful baptism and Italian style feast. We love u sissy!”
The New York native also shared a photo of her with her father Joe Germanotta, Jr. and some friends, presumably taken at the dinner following the baptism ceremony. Gaga appeared to be in good spirits, despite confirming that she had split from her fiance Taylor Kinney last week (ends24Jul16).
“The boys are back in town,” she captioned the snap. “love that my daddy hangs out w(ith) my crew. Or that I hang out w(ith) his…I’m not sure anymore (sic)!”
And it seems that little Sistilia is in good hands with Gaga as the multi-talented performer is said to take her role as a godmother very seriously. The 30-year-old already serves in the role for Elton John and husband David Furnish’s two sons, Zachary, five, and Elijah, three, with Elton revealing in February (16) that Gaga takes a hands-on approach with the boys.
“She buys them presents on their birthdays and at Christmas, but more than anything, she’s a good godmother,” Elton gushed on U.S. daytime show The Talk. “She comes and she bathes them, and she sings to them, and she tells them stories, which is the best thing of all; it’s the personal thing…”
