Spencer Matthews chooses James Middleton to be a godfather to his son

Spencer Matthews and Vogue Williams have chosen James Middleton to be one of the godparents to their son.
The former ‘Made In Chelsea’ star and Irish model-and-DJ Vogue have asked James – the brother of Duchess Catherine, the wife of future British monarch Prince William – to be godfather to their eight-month-old son Theodore, and the entrepreneur has accepted.
Speaking in the Sebastian Shakespeare column in The Daily Mail newspaper, James said: "Very kindly they asked me. I’m delighted to be a godfather."
There is a family connection between the reality TV star and James as his other sister Pippa Middleton married Spencer’s brother James Matthews in May 2017
Spencer – who tied the knot with Vogue in June 2018 – has revealed that Theodore has a total of five godparents.
Speaking to VIP magazine, Spencer said: "Vogue went down the family route, her sister Amber is his godmother, my sister Nina is also godmother and then a few of my pals, Max Keble White, my cousin Rob Parker and James Middleton will be his godfathers, not a bad crowd.
"It’s more a nod to our close friends and a nod to their reliability and responsibility. A little gold star on a very good friend."
Spencer and Vogue want to have their son christened in June to coincide with their first wedding anniversary
He said: "We’re going to christen Theodore at a very similar time to our anniversary, at the same place we got married."
The couple tied the knot at his family’s 10,000 acre Glen Affric Estate near Inverness, Scotland.
