Tony Blair 'godfather to Rupert Murdoch's daughter'

Tony Blair Tony Blair angered many in his party when he decided to woo the Murdoch press

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair is godfather to one of Rupert Murdoch's young children, it has emerged.

Mr Blair was present last March when Mr Murdoch's two daughters by his third wife, Wendi Deng, were baptised.

The revelation comes in an interview with Ms Deng in a forthcoming issue of fashion magazine Vogue.

Tony Blair's office declined to comment on the report, which sheds new light on Mr Blair's ties with the media mogul.

Mr Blair, who is said to have been "robed in white" during the ceremony, is the godfather to Grace, the second youngest of Mr Murdoch's six children.

The nine-year-old was baptised with her younger sister Chloe, on the banks of the river Jordan, at the spot Jesus is said to have undergone the same ceremony, according to Vogue.
